A Grand Rapids, MI native, Steven started out in this business as an actor, working for Disney Creative ENT and appearing in multiple nat’l tours of broadway shows and regionally. Transitioning into the film/tv world, Steven acted as Supervising Sound Editor for the independent feature, Bridge and Tunnel. Having produced over 500 scenes with REELARC, Steven has become acutely aware of how an actor can use what they have to get what they want, often sharing what he’s learned with his students at T. Schreiber Studio as part of their summer On-Camera Intensive and Two Year Conservatory Program.
In 2016, the REELARC team partnered with Tom Lapke, formerly the head of Backstage University, to create an educational and benefits program called Actors Launchpad. Now considered a leading professional enrichment program for actors in NYC, Actors Launchpad provides physical classes and VOD classes for actors across the US and internationally.
Steven is a Founding Member of Sixth Legions Media and current Creative Director for REELARC
