Steve was born and raised in West Michigan. He graduated from Creston High school. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in accounting from Ferris State University and later returned to Western Michigan University and earned his MBA.

One of Steven’s favorite past times was spending his Saturday afternoons at the BIG House for Wolverine Football.
