Whether it was camping or snowboarding in the Sierra Nevada Mountains or visiting his grandparents, who lived off the coast of Vancouver, Stephen loved to travel with friends and family. While in middle school, Stephen found an interest in acting and participated in the Junior Park Avenue Player’s theatre program. During high school, he was approached by MTV to appear in Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County (2004). Next, Stephen moved north to attend college at San Francisco State University.

Since then, Stephen has consistently worked in film and television. His film credits include ” Normal Adolescent Behavior (2007)”, Shannon’s Rainbow (2009), Mask Maker (2011).
