nDash Writer Profile for Steve Hendershot


Multimedia journalist and brand storyteller

About Me

Steve Hendershot, founder and chief creative officer of Cedar Cathedral Narrative Studio in Chicago, is an award-winning multimedia journalist and content marketer who delights in telling stories that are quirky, complex and important. Versatility is a bit of an obsession: he has profiled Supreme Court justices and craft brewers, physicists and football stars, and the subjects of his most recent deep dives range from healthcare architecture to education policy. 

Steve’s bestselling book about the video game series Street Fighter was named one of the top gaming books of all time. He has received national acclaim both for his journalism and also his work on behalf of brands such as Adobe, Qualtrics, Staples and Epsilon. In 2021 and again in 2022, he contributed to projects that won multiple Content Marketing Awards from the Content Marketing Institute, and also received a Peter J. Lisagor Award for excellence in Chicago journalism. Steve also hosts the Project Management Institute’s award-winning Projectified podcast, which ranks among the leading careers podcasts in the U.S., U.K. and Canada.

As a content marketer and brand storyteller, Steve has worked extensively with clients in higher education, healthcare, financial services, technology, marketing, retail, and architecture and design. Formats and channels include video production, podcasts, magazine features, ebooks and whitepapers.
