Steve shot his first story for National Geographic magazine in 1995. Since then, assignments have taken him to Brazil, where he was stalked by jaguars and saw worms coming out of his skin; was charged by an 11-foot grizzly in Siberia. He was trapped in quicksand in the world’s largest tiger reserve in Myanmar, camped for six weeks at 30º below photographing snow leopards in the Himalayas, and has flown over erupting volcanoes in Iceland. Through these and other stories, he hopes to excite readers about people and culture and the natural world—and help conserve disappearing wildlife and the world’s last wild places.

Steve worked as a photojournalist for Black Star Photo Agency, and produced stories for GEO, Time, Newsweek, Fortune, Natural History, Audubon, Business Week, Scientific American, and Stern and others.

His work has taken him around the globe, sometimes to remote and physically challenging destinations. Teaching and lecturing about his adventures is an integral part of the best job in the world. He lives with his wife, son and two dogs in New Jersey.
