Steven earned his Master’s in Eng Lit from Fitchburg State in 2003 and currently serves as a board member of The Forge Theater Lab, an FSU Alumni endeavor. While starting a life-changing diet and lifestyle modification on January 1st, 2017, which resulted in a loss of a total of 135 lbs in 13 months, his step-mother was coming to the end of her battle with Ovarian Cancer.
Steven received a call from her days before she passed, 8 months into his journey. She had one last request that he make an honest effort at making yoga a part of his life and left him all her yoga gear. True to her last wish Steven embarked on his yoga journey. After volunteer teaching at the YMCA for a year as a substitute, Steven won a scholarship via Instagram to journey to Morocco in June 2019 to earn 200 hrs YTT through Circasana Yoga. Now his goal is to help others find in yoga something that his mother knew he needed more than him.
