Steven is a writer, video whiz and recovering journalist with an appetite for great storytelling (and sushi).
Steven’s communications experience spans the media spectrum, including award-winning work for television, radio and digital platforms. He leverages his journalism background to research complex topics and translate them into crisp, meaningful stories for clients.
Before moving to Jacksonville, Steven was an on-air reporter for WTOC, the CBS affiliate and top-rated television station in Savannah, Georgia. As a member of the station’s night-side and investigative teams, he covered a range of topics including local government, crime and breaking news across the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.
Back in Gator Country
As entertaining as it was to spend time "behind enemy lines" in Georgia, this University of Florida grad is happy to be back in the land of Orange and Blue. Steven taught at UF as a graduate instructor in the College of Journalism and Communications while working toward his master’s degree. He also earned his bachelor’s degree from UF’s J-School while working as an anchor and reporter for north-central Florida’s PBS and NPR stations.
In 2012, Steven received a national Edward R. Murrow Award, and he is a two-time award-winner in the national Hearst Broadcast News Championship. He was also recognized with the 2013 Rae O. Weimer Award, the highest honor in the UF College of Journalism and Communications.
Outside the office
Steven's daydreams consist of boating on the Suwannee River, reading by the beach or browsing Netflix with his wife, Marie, and golden retriever, Charlie. He is a member of Florida Blue Key and Leadership Florida, a statewide community of leaders engaged in understanding and serving the Sunshine State. He appreciates good wine (prerequisite for working here) and discovering unique restaurants and recipes. In his free time (i.e., not college football Saturdays), Steven enjoys cooking, playing the guitar and blowing off steam at the gym.
