Steve grew up in the greater Boston area After earning an Economics degree at Framingham State University he realized he needed to pursue a career in film making. Pounding the pavement he 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 to this day works as a Grip in New York City. But before leaving 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 his most recent project – an award winning dramatic narrative short titled Window Dressing.
