Casimiro joined Powder magazine in 1987 and ran the editorial until September 1998, when the company was purchased by Petersen Publishing. He was the founding editor of Bike magazine and oversaw that for six years.
Steve grew up in Arlington, Virginia; received a journalism degree at George Mason University; worked at USA Today's fledgling online division (in 1984); and then moved to Vermont to work as a reporter for the Burlington Free Press (and be closer to skiing). He now lives in Monarch Beach, California, where he can mountain bike, trail run, surf, and climb year-round, not to mention shoot and test the gear he reviews for Adventure.
