Hi, I’m Steve
I’m a maker, a builder, an artist, and I want to create innovative digital experiences which drive results.
I’m currently seeking a senior level marketing, eCommerce, or digital role at a domestic outdoor or sports industry brand.
I believe that through nature one finds their truth; whether in wilderness or on the field of play.
Quality, purpose-driven products empower athletes to obtain the most from their experiences – becoming better versions of themselves.
Remain authentically loving, compassionate, patient and respectful.
Be honest. Be ethical. Be fair.
Curiosity + Risk = Growth
Focus on meaningful actions and work with meaningful people and organizations.
Find a tribe or found a tribe – those are the only options.

“…I was hired as a part of Steve’s team, and he quickly took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. Steve is universally well-liked, multitalented, a strong team player, and incredibly intelligent – everything you’d hope for in a boss and coworker. But what makes Steve stand out from the rest is his innate ability to consistently go above and beyond the traditional expectations of a boss – patiently training, coaching, and mentoring me, offering support and encouragement when needed, but also giving constructive feedback to ensure I was operating at my highest potential.”
“… [Steve] is an excellent leader, manager, coach, marketer and strategist. Steve is extremely client-focused, and does a great job creating and implementing custom … strategies for his clients. … Steve fostered an environment of continuous improvement, and always made it a priority to be available to team members to offer advice and help. … Steve is a persistent advocate for his team by promoting the team’s successes and abilities to provide maximum value to clients.
