Prior to co-founding the company in 2019, he worked at The Weekly Standard for 18 years, covering Washington, politics, and national security. Steve is the author of two New York Times bestsellers.

When Steve is not focused on The Dispatch, he’s probably traveling with his family, grilling, or riding his mountain bike.
