When Boxoffice Magazine was hunting for new blood, a then critic at the site/magazine (Pam Grady) recommended Steve as a regular stringer. I hired him, and I'm glad I did. Steve was among the most reliable freelance critics I ever managed. He has an incredible work ethic, impeccable organization, and his writing and communications are excellent.
