Steve’s views on development were shaped at an early age, watching a once pristine Southern California get paved over. After graduating from UCSB, Steve worked for six years in the energy conservation business. This included work as an energy auditor, and as a as an instructor in energy conservation practices. Steve also studied alternative energy sources, culminating in a graduate certificate in Energy Planning and the Environment from the University of Oslo, Norway.
Steve has been working in the Internet industry since 1998. As an original member of Save The Wave Coalition’s board of directors, Steve helped map out the Internet strategy. This strategy has been to reach out to surfers and supporters around the globe, and to bring global attention to local environmental issues.
Steve currently resides in London, England with his family. He dosen’t get enough sun or surf, though that would be true for him anywhere.
