Steven received his Master of Library Science degree from Clarion University of Pennsylvania (now PennWest Clarion) and holds a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from Eastern Michigan University. He has served as a reference librarian at Lawrence Tech since 2017 and is the library's representative to the College of Architecture + Design, the Audio Engineering Technology program, and the Specs Howard School of Media Arts.

Prior to working at LTU, Steven was an editor and client manager for Lone Buffalo, an information company which monitors news for reputation management and competitive intelligence purposes. His clients were diverse, ranging from McGraw-Hill Financial Inc. (now S&P Global Inc.) to the Governor's Office of the State of California.

Before entering the information science field, Steven had a long career in the field of retail banking. Steven began with Standard Federal Bank as a personal banker and loan officer and later was promoted to manager and bank officer during the bank’s acquisition by Bank of America. At Bank of America, Steven worked as a market trainer for new employees and was a member of his market’s “Bank Center Operations Committee”, a management group which met to formulate and implement improved risk management practices in the banking centers.

Steven is a lifelong musician and is a brand ambassador for Waves Audio, the first and largest provider of third-party digital audio processing software in the world. He is currently applying some of his audio skills for a restoration/preservation project for COAD’s ArchiLecture video series.

Steven’s professional interests include open educational resources, teaching information evaluation, research data librarianship, and continually remaking the library to be more interesting and accessible. He is responsible for developing and maintaining the library’s website. He is also the creative force behind much of the video content by the library, including the series of video shorts called “What Lurks in the Buell Underworld?” starring LTU’s own Blue Lawrence.
