Director of Product
A Montana transplant Steven feels blessed to be living his best life in the last best place – where he ‘rescued’ his dog Jayne, his constant companion while exploring the great outdoors, met and fell in love with his wife and has recently welcomed and is raising his newborn son.
What cause are you passionate about?
Missoula has the most amazing mountain biking community and in my mind the pinnacle of that is the Missoula Parks and Rec Zootown Derailleurs program that I’ve had the privilege of coaching for. ZTD builds community one kid at a time all the way from ages 2-18 while teaching resiliency and self-empowerment through mountain biking.
What was the first big thing you bought with your own money?
I’m not sure which came first, but two items that stick out in my mind are stock in the 3DO company (which eventually went bankrupt) and my first and only motorcycle – a Suzuki GS500E.
Where’s your favorite vacation spot?
The entire Sierra Nevada range has a special place in my heart. These days top of my list is a road-trip to either Moab or British Columbia to camp and mountain bike.
If you had a time machine, what would you do?
Short that stock and go for a ride!
Have you ever won a contest?
In another lifetime my younger and more svelte self won a footrace or two.
