Steve Santagati is the NY times best selling author, a 22 year seasoned TV personality, and is the BEST relationship expert/mechanic of our time. He is the inspiration behind the 2009 movie The Ugly Truth starring Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler [he plays Steve].
Steve has always been a mover-and-shaker. By the time he turned 21, he held a college degree with honors from Emerson College, owned a company selling jeans to Bloomingdales and Filenes, and had launched a modeling career that would soon span two decades and include clients like Gap, Armani, Gillette, Vogue, and GQ.
There aren't many extreme sports that Steve hasn't tried, and his adventures have taken him around the world, from the Amazon to Everest: He's called Australia, Italy, and Japan "home". He also designed and built his own house, a 300-acre homestead in Vermont.
Steve is now a seasoned television personality who embodies a rare combination of television savvy and real-life relationship experience. Television producers and magazines gravitate toward his no nonsense approach to dating advice, which he has frequently displayed on The Today Show, OPRAH, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, and VH1. His on-camera television experience also extends to a long history of appearing in countless TV commercials, and hosting numerous shows. He was an editor-at-large for Men's Journal magazine and a contributor to Jane magazine.
Steve has been doling out relationship advice for a very long time, much of it drawn from his own personal experience as a three-decade serial dater. He compliments that experience with the knowledge he has accumulated from the people he has advised over the years. He hasn't just read about the intricacies of relationships; he lived them, and still is today.
