Steve is a lifelong music fan who never mastered an instrument – he can only play the stereo. He and his wife have been residents of the Waterloo Region for over 35 years. He especially enjoys live performances and has attended the Sun Life UpTown Waterloo Jazz Festival for as long as he can remember.
After a career in the Financial Services industry, Steve decided to turn his hobby and passion for music into a fulfilling retirement activity by becoming a volunteer at the Festival for 5 years. After his "apprenticeship", he expanded his involvement by joining the Executive Team as Media Director and Co-President.
Steve loves helping to bring this world-class musical event to our Community every year while supporting local artists and businesses
