Philanthropic Advisor. Steve is a northern California native, spending his formative years in the Golden State, and graduating from U.C. Davis with a B.A. degree in Political Science. Over the next decade plus, Steve took his education and passion on the road and developed his professional skills in the area of Sales, Pricing and Operations, in places as far flung as the Aloha State and Miami, with a stint in the Big Apple and Los Angeles. Steve began working for LexisNexis Risk Solutions while living in Miami, and is still with them today providing Pricing expertise for their Fortune 500 clients. Steve currently resides in Marin County, minutes north of San Francisco, and finds philanthropy to be second nature having been involved with charitable fundraising since the early 90's. In addition to volunteering for a few non-profit organizations, he spends much of his free time hiking, playing tennis, perusing art galleries and museums and writing screenplays. Steve is an advocate for the arts, marginalized children and endangered animals, and its no surprise that much of his philanthropic impact focuses on those areas.
