About Me / Über mich

Life is measured in years young. Hikes are measured in hours of feasting. Germany is measured in metric, and my brain thinks imperially. So, here goes: Stephen’s life in Berlin.

 

We’ll Someday Call This ‘Old-Fashioned’ – About Me

When I was 0, my identical twin brother Brian lost the race out of the womb, completing our family of three kids. When I was almost 1, my dad, who had been stationed in Germany, moved us to the United States for the first time. When I was 4, Florida’s Clown College was my dream school. When I was 10, my family settled in Texas, where we spent the next eight years. When I was 14, my grandparents gave me my first digital camera, inspiring photography as a hobby. When I was 18, I enrolled at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to study mechanical engineering. When I was 19, I re-discovered the joy of fingerpainting. When I was 20, engineering bored me, so I enrolled in a masters program for Technical Communication, then Denmark stole my heart while on study abroad. When I was 21, I started my career doing product communication for Ecovative, a biomaterials company specializing in growing high performing composites from fungi. When I was 24, I beat my brother and sister in a “race” to visit all 50 states. What’s next? I became a bit of a runner after moving to Boston. I’ve pivoted to triathlons, and maybe I’ll tackle an Ironman distance in Europe. When I am 84, I will be the old man who still likes to dance.
