Call me Steve, cause I still get Stefan way too much. I'm an Associate Creative Director at Leo Burnett Detroit. I was also born in Detroit and spent

 a majority of my childhood in Washington D.C. - During that time, my Father and I visited countless Civil War battlefields. When I wasn't

sketching or practicing archeology, I was kicking the soccer ball around; so much so that I ended up playing in college, then semi-pro. Now a bit

slower and grayer, I stick to kicking my kid's toys. And when I'm not doing that, I'm usually seen working - designing shirts - or eating unhealthy.

I'm a Creative with a strong appetite for Design. I work on everything; television, digital, social and print. I'm constantly pushing to find that one big idea. I'm constantly working, always solving. I've worked with clients big and small and have been very fortunate to concept and execute some pretty funny stuff for the Super Bowl. Advertising is more than a job. Each part of it intrigues me and keeps me fresh; discovering ideas, changing the way people interact with brands and inventing new ways to reach people.
