Hi, I’m Steve

And I’m about to graduate from the University of Oregon M.S. Sports Product Management Program

My Goal

I’m currently seeking a mid-to-senior level marketing, merchandising, or PLM position at a domestic outdoor or running brand whose values align to my own.

My Why

I believe that sport develops character and is a catalyst for growth.
Quality, purpose-driven products enable athletes to obtain the most from their experience – becoming  better versions of themselves.

Core Values

Be Kind.

Remain authentically loving, compassionate, patient and respectful.

Epitomize Integrity.

Be honest. Be ethical. Be fair.

Embrace Adventure.

Curiosity + Risk = Growth

Be Purpose-driven.

Focus on meaningful actions and work with meaningful people and organizations.

We are Powerful.

Find a tribe or found a tribe – those are the only options.
