• An English-Chinese bilingual journalist, Steven has worked in Asia and the United States for almost two decades.

    Now based in China, Steven is CNN's senior TV producer at the network's Beijing bureau. His profile on a mother fighting for gay rights in China and another report on China's crackdown on dissent both received the merit awards at the 15th Human Rights Press Awards in Hong Kong in 2011.

    In addition to his regular reporting from around China, Steven has covered Japan's worst nuclear crisis in history and the Arab Spring unrest in the Middle East for which the CNN team received a prestigious Peabody Award.

    More recently, he managed the network's coverage on the missing Malaysian airliner from China and the sunken passenger ferry from South Korea.

    Before returning to CNN in 2010, Steven covered Asia - as a producer or a correspondent - for CBS News, NBC News, France24 and Singapore's Channel NewsAsia. From 1999 to 2005, he spent nearly six years producing for CNN in Atlanta and Beijing.

    Steven moved to the United States from China as a teenager. He graduated with honors from Northwestern University with majors in journalism and international studies.
