Get To Know Steve

Name a hidden talent, or one unknown fact about you.

I used to breakdance in Jr. High and had a street name, “ElectroMagic.” But I lost my first dance off and retired at the age of 13.

What's the strangest job you've ever had?

My first job was at a video rental/ice cream parlor and I had to run back and forth working both parts of the store. I watched a lot of bad movies and ate way too much ice cream.

Name a guilty pleasure.

Bad horror and action movies from the 80’s. I’ve seen them all, specifically Trolls 2, which in fact contains no trolls. False advertising.

If you could learn how to do anything, what would it be?

Guitar and karate…better yet, both at the same time. Guitarate?

Steve's Favorite Project

The Outfield Apartments

This was one of our most impactful visual designs. The design really gives users a sense of the atmosphere of the ballpark, which was the message our client wanted to communicate. I loved all the small animations and playful visual elements we added to support the baseball stadium theme. It's those small touches that can make a website design stand out.
