5 Things You Didn’t Know About Steve…

My nickname is…

Maui, at least that’s what my kids call me. If you have small kids that love Disney movies, you’ll be able to guess why.

My first job was…

A construction laborer and eventually a carpenter, but the former was very hard and I wasn’t very good at the latter, so I figured I better go to college.

My first concert was…

YES, in the round at Madison Square Garden in NYC.

My favorite book is…

“Infinite Jest,” by David Foster Wallace. It’s a long and at times difficult read, but at its core it’s a beautiful work of art.

My role model is…

My father for sure. He taught me the value of continuous learning and an unrelenting work ethic.
