Steve’s influences include jazz greats Keith Jarrett, Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and McCoy Tyner and he credits them for his personal jazz style of playing and composition. During his formative years he studied with concert pianist Albert Hirsh, and jazz pianists Sid Davis who helped form his lighting fast technique and unique style. Steve later attended Berklee College of Music in Boston where he continued his jazz studies.

After recording and performing with top Boston jazz musicians such as Randy Roos and Tiger Okoshi, and leading his own jazz fusion band, he went on the road touring with several renowned jazz artists such as Billy Cobham, Stanley Clarke, Angela Bofill, Tom Brown, and Allan Holdsworth traveling international that took him to countries such as Japan, Israel, Austria, France, England, Italy, Sweden, Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, and Australia, as well as all major cities in the US and Canada.

Steve also served as musical director for The Jazz Explosion from 1985 to 1989 headlining artists such as Freddy Hubbard, Gato Barbieri, Stanley Turrentine, Ramsey Lewis, violinist Noel Pointer, Kenny G, and vocalist Phyllis Hyman and Angela Bofill. The Jazz Explosion performed in major concert venues including the Circle Star in San Francisco, Beacon Theater in New York, Universal Theater in Los Angeles, and Hammersmith Odium in London. Steve's desire towards challenging himself is nowhere more evident than with his long time association with legendary guitarist Allan Holdsworth whose progressive and innovative style has helped Steve to further his own musical development. Steve can be heard on Holdsworth recordings Secrets, Wardencliff Tower, and Hard Hat Area. Steve can also be found on two of Stanley Clarke's CD releases, If This Bass Could Only Talk and East River Drive.
