A resident of Lafayette his entire life, Steve is a 1978 graduate of Teurlings High School and a 1996 graduate of USL. He was a fan of the New Orleans Saints, and an avid baseball fan, with a goal of visiting every major league baseball field in the country.
Steve is an award-winning, Acadiana-based journalist who has written for numerous magazines and newspapers around the South since the early 1990s. He served as editor in chief for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s student weekly, “The Vermilion,” as well as for business and cultural magazines in the Acadiana area.
