    “Steve ‘gets’ people. He has an intuitive ability to understand and appreciate others’ perceptions and expectations of the world even if their values and interests differ from his own. Steve also has a particular way of looking at systems and instinctively identifying how they could be made more efficient and effective. I’ve worked alongside him for two years and he’s one of the most creative and resourceful people I know.”

    ~ Serra Kornfilt

    "Steve is one of the most well-connected people I know. I can rely on him for domestic and international connections as well as innovative ideas around online community-building and an intuitive ability to connect likeminded professionals. If I want a close, personal connection, I turn to Steve and he always points me in the right direction."

    ~ Damian Tew
