Steve is a Colorado native who travelled with his parents to various Air Force bases during his childhood and youth. Throughout those years, Colorado remained home and he settled here permanently in 1970. He completed a double Bachelors Degree in Music Education (choral emphasis) and Psychology from Metropolitan State University of Denver and earned his Masters Degree in Orchestral Conducting from the University of Denver.  He is an active member of the American Choral Directors Association and the American String Teachers Association. He taught for 31 years in the Adams 12 Five Star School District where he taught at the middle and high school level, with choir and orchestra students. His choirs and orchestras toured both nationally and internationally. He has spent over 20 years conducting church choirs in the Denver area and Boulder. One of his greatest joys is uniting choirs and orchestras together to perform some of the great musical literature. Spending time with his wife, Sara, and daughters, Abigail and Linnea, remains his favorite activity, but he also enjoys playing guitar, writing, wood working, cooking, and getting into the mountains occasionally for a hike.
