Starting life in Dallas Texas, Steve knew from an early age that he wanted to play electric guitar. He spent many hours of pre-strumming time listening to the popular songs of the day attempting to identify the electric guitar parts. His passion for guitar drove him to play his first paying gig at the age of 12. This led to future gigs playing high school dances, eventually leading him to play many of premier clubs in the Dallas area.
Eventually, fate led him to the Chicago area, and his current role as lead guitarist and vocalist for Bossydog.
