Steve joined Stanford GSB in the summer of 2015. Having grown up on Vancouver Island, he was excited about the chance to return to the west coast! In addition to his passion for competitive team sports, Steve has always enjoyed traveling and living internationally. Before returning for doctoral studies, he gained industry experience in the technology start-up space, working with entrepreneurs in product management and tech-transfer roles. This early interest in entrepreneurship has carried over to Steve’s present day research activities, only now he is focused on assisting entrepreneurs in emerging markets to innovate, find new customers and increase sales. Steve shares these life adventures with his wife (Sophia) and their two little dudes (Jude and Sampson).
