Steve is a Southern California native which influences his daily life and work. Upon graduating from Platt College with an AA in Graphic Design in 2000, he worked at an automobile advertising firm for a year before visiting TFN Architectural Signage in Santa Ana. That was his first introduction to environmental graphic design. Having worked as a technical designer on notable projects such as Disney’s West of West project in Anaheim, the Cerritos Library in Cerritos, and the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, he was hooked for life. After 5 years at TFN Steve worked in the small but intense art department at Volcom Clothing for 10 years during the height of the company’s graphic experimentation. Steve returned to technical design at RSM in 2018 and is loving every minute.
