Steven lives with his wife, two children, and two dogs in Bellingen Shire. An off-grid micro-hydro and solar power system produce his household energy. His wonder of space and passion for nature and the ocean fuels his writing. His favourite place to write is at the desk in the back of his kombi, overlooking a local surf break.
While working with renewable energy has been the focus of Steven’s career, his thirst for adventure has led him to sail across oceans and work as a scuba instructor on the Great Barrier Reef. He sold Bellingen Solar, the renewable energy company he founded, to begin a live-aboard sailing adventure with his family and finish writing The Hero Gene. He’s also a director on OzGREEN’s board and supports their flagship program, Youth Leading the World.
Despite the ever-increasing demands placed upon the environment, Steven remains confident that humanity will rise to the challenge of minimising global warming and conserving nature for future generations. He’s inspired by today’s young activists and their fight to bring about positive change.
