Steve studied Commercial Design after high school, but disliked it intensely. After 25 years of raising a family and working in business management, he returned to UW-Platteville online to study game art and animation. While attending he purchased several of the DVD series on 3D Buzz as supplemental education. Enamored with the community, staff, and training, he turned his eye towards teaching here at 3D Buzz.
He has done freelance work with companies such as Staal Media and Myrmidon Games. His environment art appears in "A Knight to Remember", recently selected for the Indie Prize in San Francisco.
