Upon his father’s retirement from military service in 1977, the family moved to Savannah, Georgia where Steve spent his formative years. He considers Savannah to be his hometown.
Upon graduating from Armstrong State College with a BA in 1986, Steve entered the US Army as a Second Lieutenant and was formally trained as a tank commander. Over a seven-year military career Steve served in various line and staff positions of increased responsibility, including service in the Middle East during the First Persian Gulf War. The military taught him discipline, sacrifice and devotion to duty. He left the Army at the rank of Captain in 1993 to pursue opportunities in the private sector.
Steve has held several operations, business development, and management positions of increased responsibility over several years with various organizations to include John Harland Company, Spherion, Briggs Equipment, and Delta Global Staffing- a subsidiary of Delta Airlines.

Steve received a Master’s Degree in Public Administration in 1998 from Georgia State University. After that he was invited to be an Adjunct Professor in the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State where he taught various graduate and undergraduate level courses. Being in the classroom taught him patience.
