That’s Steven -- the one on the camel during one of his many swings through the Middle East -- of course, with his camera in hand.
Born and raised in Chicago, Steven has worked for a major international advertising agency in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, and Singapore where he also produced and hosted a weekend radio show and in-flight channels for Singapore Airlines. Additionally, he was a voice-over talent, and wrote for one of Singapore’s newspapers.
An exhibited photographer and intrepid traveler, Steven now lives in New York City and works on Madison Avenue.
Steven earned his B.A. in Chinese Language & Literature from Washington University in St. Louis, and his M.A. in International Relations from The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C.
ABOUT THE SHOW
There was one question Steven thought to ask his many celebrity guests while hosting his weekend radio show, Encuentro Latino on Singapore’s Gold 90.5 FM: “If I gave you a one way ticket, where would you go?”
He never did ask.
Instead, he thought to develop a whole show around the question.
He would allow guests to use their imaginations and interpret their answers as they saw fit.
Their one way ticket could be a place to which they’ve never been, or a place with which they’re familiar and would love to return. It could be a hideaway or refuge where they decompress or think about during stressful times. It could be an existential or metaphorical one way ticket, or a state of mind, and may be in the past, present or future.
A move to New York City and chance encounters with some interesting people he wanted to pose the question to, he knew the time was right to finally launch “The One Way Ticket Show.”
Steven’s still not sure where he’d take his own one way ticket, but knows that wherever it is, he’d chose a more comfortable mode of transport than a camel.
