Steve Truitt is an avid space enthusiast, NASA history buff and flown-in-space memorabilia collector. He is a proud member of the National Space Society and the Planetary Society and boasts the impressive fact of having met five moonwalkers!
TV audiences will recognize Steve as a Los Angeles TV news anchor and host of such science and technology shows as NatGeo's The Human Edge and Discovery Channel's Cool Stuff: How It Works. He has also hosted Dream Decoders, Ground Rules! and Sony Playstation's annual coverage of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
Not really an actor, but a ridiculously huge Star Trek fan, Steve begged the casting director at Paramount studios for years to appear on a show - any show - that had the title Star Trek in front of it. Well, after an ambitious and endless letter-writing campaign, Steve got his wish and was granted one line on Enterprise (S3; Ep21). Check it out, it's breathtaking. (but don't blink).
He is also the co-creator and co-host of "Energize! A Star Trek Podcast", which breaks down episodes of current Star Trek series like Picard, Strange New Worlds, and Lower Decks.
As a producer, Steve co-created and co-produced the popular series Born Schizophrenic which earned him and his team the CINE Foundation's Golden Eagle Award for Excellence in documentary television.
Now a successful coach, trainer and motivational speaker, Steve was awarded with the Reader Views Prize for Best Motivational Book of the Year, Stop Waiting For Permission!
His first novel, The MindSet Chronicles • Book One: The Deletion examines life in a post-artificial intelligence world where a disconnected society scrambles for a solution. Steve's exploration of a new form of interconnection, MindSet, pits part-time rivals, part-time lovers Bethany Anne Okoyé and Peter Eriksson against each other as the notion of "Crowd Wisdom" is tested to extreme degrees.
Steve lives in Los Angeles with his wife and four daughters.
