A naturally curious storyteller, marketer and PR strategist
Steven is a marketing and public relations pro, writer and content strategist with an appetite for great storytelling (and garlic hummus). He joined the Reputation Ink team as an Account Coordinator in 2016 and has since been promoted to Content Marketing Manager and, most recently, Director of Content and PR. He oversees the agency's architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) accounts, equipping his team to provide informed insight and unmatched client service.
As a lifelong learner, Steven enjoys trivia, discovering new technologies, and dissecting how his clients' services and solutions contribute to the built world. Plus, he genuinely appreciates connecting with savvy clients and learning more about the stories and individuals behind the expertise. Given his experience working on the agency's legal accounts, he continues to advise a handful of law firm clients on media strategy and content marketing efforts.
Award-winning journalist and educator
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 client stories.
Before joining Rep Ink, Steven was an on-air multimedia journalist for the CBS affiliate in Savannah, Georgia. As a member of the station’s night-side and investigative teams, he covered various topics, including local government, crime and breaking news across the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.
While working toward his master's degree, Steven taught at the University of Florida as a graduate instructor in the College of Journalism and Communications. He earned his undergraduate degree from UF’s J-School and was an anchor and reporter for North Central Florida’s PBS and NPR stations. He received a national Edward R. Murrow Award and was a two-time award-winner in the national Hearst Broadcast News Championship.
Musician, reader and lifelong learner
Steven's weekends typically involve some combination of the Florida sunshine, home improvement projects and working through his ever-growing stack of books to read. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, playing the guitar and piano, and going on adventures with his wife (Marie), daughter (Olivia) and golden retriever (Charlie).
