Steven was born in St. Petersburg, Florida, and was raised on Lake Weiss in Cedar Bluff, Alabama where he learned how to water ski at the age of four. He then spent most of his life near Kennesaw, Georgia where he earned his Bachelors Degree in Business Management. Steven recently moved back to Florida where it all began to follow his dream of being on the water as much as possible. Before moving back, he knew he wanted his next career path to be either scuba, fishing, or boating related. 48 hours before he was to move to Jacksonville, he received a call from his uncle insisting that he move to Tampa instead, to manage his boat rental business throughout Tampa Bay. Steven was looking forward to the thrill of figuring things out on his own in Jacksonville, but realized life had handed him a golden opportunity so he moved to Tampa and has never looked back. While working for his uncle, he has been around all types of boats, from center consoles, deck boats, pontoons, and cuddy cabins, to catamarans and sail boats, and he works daily from a 40 foot Hatteras convertible floating office in Ruskin, Florida near Apollo Beach. Steven has also recently completed his 100 ton Masters Captains License, Towing endorsement, and has become a Yacht Broker for Blue Horizon Yacht Sales.
Steven has devoted the vast majority of his life to the sales industry, selling luxury items such as jewelry and high end patio accessories, such as hot tubs, outdoor kitchens and outdoor living rooms. He credits his negotiating skills to his jewelry background, where he used to buy, sell and trade gold and diamonds. Let Steven's creativity, attention to detail, and can do attitude help you leverage your best price for both buying and selling your next yacht.
