The Washington Post called him "the man who wrote the book on wanderlust." Born and raised in Canada, Steve has ventured through more than fifty countries on six continents. In fact, this former attorney left behind a successful law practice in Toronto to set out on a three-year around-the-world journey through Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and the South Pacific.
Steve's travels have allowed him to trek the Himalayas, welcome the sunrise over the Amazonian jungle, backpack across erupting lava fields in Zaire, and chat with two of the most fascinating figures of our times--Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa.
Following a more creative path, he studied photography and film, and then spent a year with his laptop in South Africa. Combining writing with his passion for the road, Steve Zikman is the author of the highly acclaimed book entitled The Power of Travel: A Passport to Adventure, Discovery and Growth and the forthcoming Doing Good for Goodness' Sake (Fall, 2004), and co-author of the bestselling series titles Chicken Soup for the Traveler's Soul and Chicken Soup for the Nature Lover's Soul.
Steve is the founder of GOscape.com providing powerful tools to enrich, enhance and expand our appreciation of travel, home, and the great outdoors. Steve is the online columnist for the National Business Travel Association and his syndicated column, The Soulful Traveler, appears on leading websites. A member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, he is a contributor to a variety of multimedia publications including Interline Adventures, SoulfulLiving.com, Home & Away and Personal Journaling. Steve has also appeared as a guest on hundreds of radio and television programs nationwide, including NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox.
A dynamic and captivating keynote speaker, panelist, and in-house seminar leader, Steve is also a certified self-esteem and labyrinth facilitator.
When he's not writing or speaking, Steve heads out again--to riverbeds teeming with wildlife in the Kalahari Desert, a golden-hued farmhouse in Italy, or the majestic mountains near his home in Los Angeles.
