Steve Ramos is a national, award-winning journalist whose advocacy of independent and art cinema has made him one of America's leading critical voices. His work has appeared in numerous publications including Boxoffice, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Movie Jungle.com, New York Magazine.com, Screen Daily and indieWire among others. In 2001, Ramos broke the story of a Cincinnati art-house theater snipping a sex scene from director Wayne Wang's "The Center of the World," which led the theater owner to ban him indefinitely from the theater.

He earned a BA in Philosophy from Xavier University and makes his home in Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife and son.
