He has written twelve original screenplays, two teleplays, one play, two children’s books and a recently published novel, “Compromised Positions.” The author has won the International Cine Golden Eagle Award as well as the American Documentary Film New York Festival Award for Huichol: People of the Peyote.

Aside from being a writer, Steve is an independent businessman and a Horticulturist. He works substantially in the financial industry and in mortgage banking.

Steve’s a family man with three children, two of whom are college graduates and one is in the twelfth grade.

This author has won both of his prestigious awards through practical experiences and his eyes see deeply into character shattering most of the usual screens. His personal philosophy supports a populist view and he’s proud of being a progressive environmentalist who balances ideas before he votes them. Steve works each day in a practical world while interacting with many people and making his voice heard. In a society of many ‘blind faiths,’ he tries to open the box, or separate the ‘iron vice’ of conformity in order to let truth enter when and wherever possible.
