Stephen was Born in Illinois. His family moved him to Arizona in 1985. He has lived in the Southeast valley ever since.
He graduated from Gilbert High School in 1989. He went on to get his associates degree in Fire Fighting, but life took a different turn for him.
He used to build power lines for SRP and a contractor. He started in insurance in 2005 when his father was diagnosed with a long term brain disease, and decided he needed a new career with free time to be able to take care of his father.
He started at Farmers insurance in 2005 and in 2009 started The Independent insurance brokerage, The Insurance Team.
Steve is a huge Arizona Rattlers, Phoenix Coyotes and Arizona Cardinals fan! He loves golfing in the beautiful outdoors of the valley!
