Steve comes from sunny San Diego, California where he spent his youth enjoying the beautiful weather and warm white sand beaches. In 2004 he graduated from high school and enlisted in the U.S. Army, where his initial basic training brought him to Georgia. In 2005 he arrived to Texas and was stationed at Fort Hood, not too far from Austin. After 5 years and two tours in Iraq, he was honorably discharged from the military and decided to live in Austin. He lived in Austin on and off for 5 years while he worked in Africa helping to teach U.N. and A.U. peacekeepers in support of missions across the continent. In 2015 he decided to attend college and further his educational goals. In 2018 he graduated with a degree in Biochemistry from Baylor University and moved back to Austin, the city he loved.
Steve spends his time power lifting and strength training while also continuing his education in the field of biochemistry and genomics.
