Steve was a former teacher with most of his teaching years as a computer teacher. His interests in documenting family histories begins in the 1970s with a 2 hour video of his mother’s family consisting of 8 brothers and sisters. He produced a short film on his family through his grandfather’s photo album for “Turning Leaves” a photo album project that opened at the Bancroft Library gallery. More recently, he has been in Visual Communication’s Digital History program, a film program for seniors, and produced 8 short films through the program.
