Steven Michael Maddis


With the exception of the vast riches, the neverending string of sexual conquests and the crippling drug and gambling addictions, Steven Michael Maddis lives a life not unlike that of your favo(u)rite international playboys.
A 40's-ish Canadian father of one, Steve spends most of his days kicking and screaming his way through the corporate world. He spends his free time jetting around his hometown in Southern Ontario, Canada to spend time with his 11 year old son and his utterly awesome girlfriend. A simple man with interests bordering on the mundane, Steve asks for little out of life, gives back whatever is required by court order... and on a three month rotating basis, ensures that at least one utility bill is paid on time! He manages to feed his only addiction- watching cars turn left- 36 weekends a year.
With his ascerbic wit, his genuine charm and his stunning I.Q (as well as his thesaurus and his captivating modesty).... Steve cordially invites you to enter the one corner of his world from which you might come out intact. Try it! You might even like it!!
