Steve was born and raised in Grosse Pointe Woods where he and his three siblings followed the same educational path – St Joan of Arc, Grosse Pte North, and Michigan State. At MSU, he received a degree in Supply Chain Management.
Upon graduation, he worked in Washington DC for IBM and Booz Allen Hamilton over a five-year period. He then worked for three years in IT for Quicken Loans before his current careers at FreightRoll, since 2018, and Hill Mortgage, since 2021. FreightRoll’s primary focus is digitizing bills of lading and post shipment reconciliation. Removing the paperwork from the process, they use tablets to capture signatures and store data. Once items are shipped, they can document overages, shortages, and damage in real time so the parties can begin the claim process. Steve rented office space near Hill Mortgage and eventually joined the company part-time. As an independent mortgage broker, his job is to price loans through several wholesale lenders, such as UWM and Home Point. This job is trending from part-time to full-time.
While working two jobs last year and studying for his mortgage license, to help with stress he read a book called the Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. To bring structure to his life, he started following the book’s six-step daily routine: Silence, Affirmation, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing. These steps allow him to think about what he wants to accomplish that day, reflect on things he has done, and examine what he can do to become a better all-around person.
In his free time, he enjoys golf, MSU and Detroit sports, DCFC soccer, attending concerts, and spending times with many of his high school and college friends who live in the area. Steve became engaged to his fiancé Lauren on August 11, 2021 and has plans for a fall wedding.
