Steve grew up in the greater Boston area playing a lot of sports. After earning an Economics degree from Framingham State University and hanging up the hockey skates, he got involved in social work - with teenagers. But film making was calling and making it's voice heard. So away he went. Pounding the pavement Steve found work in a Grip/Lighting Rental House, and before long found himself driving a truck full of motion picture equipment to film sets throughout New England. He learned the trades of Grip and Electric, and worked on numerous films before moving to New York City. While in Boston Steve wrote, directed, and acted in his first short film A Place to Be . He also traveled extensively to Europe and Central America shooting slides as well as some 16mm black and white - cinema verite stuff. He moved to NY in 1999 and enrolled at the Acting Studio completing their two year program. Subsequent to that Steve landed one of his favorite roles with what became an award winning short film, Freebox by Shandor Garrison. “I loved playing that salt of the earth, blue collar, boat mechanic struggling along.” In 2009 Steve wrote, directed, and acted in his next short film, The Neighborly which showed at the 2010 Soho Film Festival. In 2015 he wrote, directed and acted in Window Dressing - an award winning dramatic narrative short film which premiered and played various festivals in 2016 & 2017. At one of these festivals, Steve was recruited for a lead role in what became Andrew Froening's 2018 award winning short Cog & Gear. The film premiered at this year's Brightside Tavern Film Festival bringing Steve a Best Actor nomination.
