Steve recently produced and directed the new feature documentary, THE PAST IS NEVER DEAD. It will be released in 2019.

He began as a freelance cinematographer and then started directing commercials and corporate docs for clients such as AB/Inbev, AT&T, Maxwell House, Smithfield, Kraft, among many, many others. He joined the freelance circus in 2005 after a career in corporate management, and a shorter career as an ad agency creative director.

Steve lives in the low southern hills of Jackson, Missouri, and though he wishes he loved the coast (or any happening big city) enough to live there, he’d rather spend his down time inside a book on his country porch.
