Steve Friedman grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. He struggled for decades as an introvert in an extrovert’s world. Dealing with personal and corporate challenges led to many unhealthy coping skills. Finally, late in his career, he began to learn about introversion, delving further while writing his memoir, In Search of Courage: An Introvert’s Story, and subsequently his weekly blog at BeyondIntroversion.com. Steve met his love, Jennifer, in Houston, Texas. Together, they have raised three amazing children, Gwendolyn, Madolyn, and Noah. They have all traveled the world and are now enjoying time hanging around the house together.
