Steve is a Jewish believer in Jesus and well known in UK Messianic circles because of the success of his trilogy, The Land of Many Names, The People of Many Names and Jesus, Man of Many Names, which seek to explain Israel, the Jews and Jesus from a Jewish perspective. His latest book, "The (other) F Word" is starting to make a real impact in the UK, on the back of TV and radio appearances as well as promotions through conferences and church meetings.
He works as a freelance web consultant for prominent UK Christian radio and TV ministries, currently Premier Radio and Premier.tv. He has also worked as a tour guide (Jewish East End of London), software house manager, a systems analyst, project manager, software designer, website designer and a computer games designer. He is a veteran of the computer games industry. One game, Pettigrew's Diary, reached number 1 in the UK software charts and acclaimed by one magazine as the adventure game of the year. Another, Woodbury End, had been acclaimed as an all-time classic. The strategy game, Empire, was the first commercially available PC game produced by a UK developer. His design work in computer based training and interactive video was described as ground-breaking.
He has written five Christian comedy dramas (for Christmas, Passover, Feast of Tabernacles, Purim and Chanukah), that have been performed many times. He has written for magazines such as Sword magazine (prophetic Christian magazine) and Crossrhythms website (the most popular website in the UK for young Christians). He has also written numerous articles for Saltshakers and Saffron Planet. In 2002 he wrote a film screenplay, Savage Butterfly, that was a whisker away from being bought by a leading London agent and was complimented on by the BBC. He also has a drawer full of many unpublished manuscripts!
He published the very first Christian computer game in the UK in the 1980s (Jericho Road) and was responsible for designing and programming the following computer products for the PC: Conflict in Jerusalem, Risen!, The Jesus Story Begins, the Lion CDROM of the Bible & Christianity, the Hodder NIV Thematic Study Bible CDROM, Discover the Truth and eMessianica encyclopaedia.
He co-founded and maintains Saltshakers (www.hebrewroots.com ), one of the most renowned messianic websites in the World, on which he has made available two free books that he wrote in the 1990s, My Son the Christian!? (his testimony) and A Tapestry of Gefilte Fish (evangelism for Jewish people).
