Not many people can say that they operated a gantry crane and built jet engines as a kid, but Steve spent several “Take Your Kid to Work Days” with his dad, an engineer at General Electric, doing just that. Coming from a family of engineers, he’s always been interested in how things work, and practicality and logical reasoning are inherent.
Steve’s work philosophy is purpose-driven. Whether he’s working on something large or small, he believes that every single screw plays a key role in the outcome. The most important goal of a project, he believes, is that the design must satisfy the needs of the users that occupy the space. When he sees people using a space in the way it was designed, he knows that the team’s hard work has paid off. Whether he’s building his own furniture to designing state-of-the-art research labs and facilities, Steve takes a whole-hearted approach to all his projects and the design challenges they pose, putting maximum effort into finding solutions and solving even the most complex of problems.
