Steve comes from the auto collision industry after spending 33 years in the trade. His love of ocean sports and the outdoors brought him from California to Oahu in 1994. He continued his career in Honolulu and eventually became a managing partner with the largest paint distribution center in the state. He served as an associate board member of the Auto Body and Painting Association of Hawaii for 17 years and has currently been serving on the board of the North Shore Christian Fellowship since 2008.
In 2012, Steve bid farewell to the auto collision industry and took a sabbatical for a year. Shortly thereafter he was introduced to Karndean Designflooring and accepted the role of territory manager for Alaska and Hawaii. “I have the best of both worlds”, he says, “living in Hawaii is a dream come true and experiencing the seasons of Alaska could not be better.” Steve resides on the windward side of Oahu with his wife Leila. They enjoy cooking up new cuisine, baking and spending time with church and family.
