steve-davisSteve Davis is the Director of Communications for Smart Growth America.

Steve has been with Smart Growth America since July 2006, joining as a communications fellow before departing to serve within the Transportation for America program from its 2008 inception until returning to SGA full-time as director of communications in 2017.

Trained at the University of Georgia’s Grady School of Journalism & Mass Communication, he was an award-winning photographer at the Arkansas Democrat Gazette before following his passion for great places to Smart Growth America. He’s worn many hats on the communications team, writing speeches for Gov. Parris Glendening, creating and spearheading the launch of the organization’s blog in 2007, kickstarting the organization’s online advocacy efforts and social media presences, and helping the Transportation for America campaign get off the ground back in 2008. Today he directs all aspects of Smart Growth America’s communications strategy. He loves the challenge of figuring out how to turn the complicated policies and details of creating more smart, sustainable, lovable places into messages that resonate with a wide range of people. Steve lives in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, DC with his wife and three children and loves his three-mile run or bike ride to work.
