When he's not hitching rides on barges in Madagascar, rowing down the Mekong Delta or trekking through the Australian Outback with Aboriginal Elders, Steve Bramucci can be found writing about said misadventures. His work has appeared in Outside, The Huffington Post and COAST, among other outlets. His travel writing has been anthologized in I Learned Kung Fu from a Bear Cub, Never Trust a Smiling Bear and the Expeditioner's Guide to Travel. In 2009, he won the Trazzler Oasis Travel Writing prize. When writing in the third-person, his goal is "to convince my mother that I'll be OK without law school."
