Born in Cape Cod in 1952 and raised in the midwest, Steve graduated late-in-life from the University of Central Florida in 2016, majoring in creative writing and art history (clearly not worried about embarking on a lifelong career with great income potential).
He moved to Florida in 1974, living in Miami through 1998 and Merritt Island until 2021. Steve and his wife Susan currently live in the Fernandina Beach Historic District on Amelia Island in Florida just north of Jacksonville.
Steve has worked as a graphic designer for over 45 years. He began as a journeyman printer and typesetter in his early 20's and graduated to ad agency art departments, working with talented art directors and illustrators. He started his graphic design business in 1977.
A turning point in his career, he attended the month-long Illustrator's Workshop in Tarrytown New York in 1977 and studied under Alan Cober, Bernie Fuchs, Bob Heindel, Fred Otnes, Mark English, and Bob Peak. Following the workshop he focused on editorial illustration, working for the Miami Herald's Tropic Magazine and Miami Magazine.
He also continued his work as a graphic designer for a variety of national, regional, and local clients. These included foundations, law firms, colleges, universities, and tech companies.
Today, Steve works regularly with national law firms, professionals, and service companies. Today he accepts assignments for logos, identities, and advertising.
Steve's passion is cartooning and illustrating. He previously worked as a freelance editorial cartoonist for Gannett's Florida Today and USA Today. Through the Gannett cartoonists syndicate his work appeared in daily papers around the U.S.. He accepts cartooning assignments from local personalities, often accepting beers in payment.
