Steven is a writer, creative and recovering journalist with an appetite for great storytelling (and hummus).
Savvy storyteller and PR strategist
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.
Prior to joining Rep Ink, Steven was an on-air multimedia journalist for WTOC-TV, 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.
Award-winning multimedia specialist
Steven taught at the University of Florida as a graduate instructor in the College of Journalism and Communications while working toward his master’s degree. He also earned a bachelor’s from UF’s J-School and served as an anchor and reporter for north-central Florida’s PBS and NPR stations.
He received a national Edward R. Murrow Award and is a two-time award-winner in the national Hearst Broadcast News Championship. He was also recognized with the 2013 Rae O. Weimer Award from the UF College of Journalism and Communications.
Musician, reader and lifelong learner
Steven's weekends typically involve some combination of sunshine, home improvement projects and and working through his ever-growing stack of books to read. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, playing the guitar and piano, and exploring Jacksonville with his wife, Marie, and golden retriever, Charlie.
