Steve is an idea guy disguised as a lawyer. As head of Corporate Development for Marketing Architects, he's a dreamer that gets things done. Huge product idea that needs ironclad patent protection? Give it to Steve. Need to negotiate a contract that redlines obstacles and underlines opportunities? Give it to Steve. Time to sell our product to a company that will take it to the moon? Yup, Steve's all over it.
Bold thinking in high-octane industries is all Steve knows. As Chief of Staff at the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), he played a critical role in helping to protect the rights of the world's greatest talent. In addition to the music industry, Steve has been a recognized leader in the tech biz both as CEO of MediaGuide and COO of IMRSV, Inc., named one of Time Inc's top 10 start-ups to watch.
A huge music lover, Steve continues to negotiate for the music industry in his off hours. Only now the litigation is confined to his family's car stereo, where he keeps the peace between his love of the "oldies" and his kids' appetite for anything but.
