Bio - Steven Bear
Steven Bear, a graduate of the prestigious Pratt Institute, forged his way first into the restaurant business when he took position with the uber-trendy eatery, Au Natural, fortuitously located near Studio 54 and Ford Modeling Agency. Famous clientele and wait staff-turn-models became great friends and close connections. This would later serve as a bridge into the travel business. Steven’s talent for connecting people was the start of something big.
When Steven met Jody, a burgeoning travel agent at Now Voyager Travel in NYC’s Greenwich Village, it was love (and business) at first sight. With Steven’s contacts and Jody‘s travel know-how the business grew exponentially and the rest is history. Eventually, Steven left the restaurant business to join Jody and run the financial and corporate affairs department of Bear & Bear Travel.
For the last 23 years Steven has become personal friends with some of the most important GM’s as well as owners of 5 star properties throughout the world. These friendships have allowed Bear & Bear Travel clients to get entrance into the most exclusive properties and venues the world over.
