 About the Author:

A native New Englander, Steve has been a college professor and a healthcare administrator. He has written books and articles on information technology. These quests are professionally rewarding and intellectually challenging; however, they did not provide physical fitness. His outdoor pursuit began after a torn Achilles tendon, a resultant limp, and weight gain. He turned to physical activity in search of a stress reliever as well as a “lifestyle for the long haul.”

Steve’s writings on ‘Outdoor Play’ enthusiastically portray the entertainment of the outdoors.  Travel with Steve and meet the challenges of outdoor recreation that are the cornerstone of his Outdoor Play: Fun 4 4 Seasons Volume II.
