Stephen Bassman

In a former life, Stephen Bassman was an Editor at Frommer's Travel Guides, where, for over a decade he edited guidebooks to (and enjoyed travel media perks in) Yellowstone National Park, New Orleans, London, Budapest, Tokyo, India, and other destinations. In 2011, he moved to San Francisco and edited California guides. Now an Editor at Google, he follows a no-gifts policy and travels on his own dime. His most recent trip, in July, was a road trip up the gorgeous Northern California coast.
