Steve grew up in the small Eastern Ontario village of Portland.
He attended Niagara College in Welland for Radio and Television Arts. While in college, he spent a summer working a swing shift at CFJR Radio in Brockville Ontario. After graduation, he worked at CHSJ-Television in Saint John, New Brunswick.
Steve began working at CHEX TV in 1978. Since then, Steve has worked as a commercial photographer, film editor, shipper, master control operator, studio cameraman, news cameraman and finally videographer.
Working in spot news has given Steve great respect for firefighters, paramedics and police officers. While working on medical stories has brought him in close contact with doctors, nurses, patients and advocates, all of whom have fascinating stories to tell. The same holds true for his experience on the education beat with teachers, students and parents.
A lifelong fan of Canadian history, Steve would love to interview figures from the past, whose voices can only be heard from written material; like Sir John A Macdonald, Sir Sandford Fleming or Sir Sam Hughes. Better still, Steve would love to sit down with those figures whose voices were never heard – like railway workers and soldiers of WWI.
In his spare time Steve is a model builder, a writer of Canadian military history, and a fan of art, photography and local music.
