Steven is passionate about giving people honor and voice, sharing wonder, and developing unity. Growing up, he wanted to be a renaissance man, but narrowed his focus to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Music from UCLA and a Master of Music in Composition-Theory from California State University, Fullerton. (For further information on his music and education, see the About page under Music). Subsequent to his formal education however, his larger creative vision has found its place within his numerous areas of involvement.
