Fascinated with adventure from early on, Stephen loved to mountain climb around the United States with his father. He graduated with a degree in Mining Engineering and took a job in Canada, working at remote mining sites in the far northern reaches. After several years as a health and safety coordinator, he returned to the USA to further his education.

Intrigued with the rising interest in sustainability, he joined a regional firm and spent several years working towards transforming mining sites into a more ‘green’ platform. Stephen eventually retired as a top executive for a multi-national consulting firm and a leading expert in strategic sustainability. He also spent several years on the Board of Directors of AIHA and the Product Stewardship Society and now actively advances sustainability strategies through public policies and legislation at the state and territorial levels in the USA and Canada.
