When I Am Not at Work
As a husband and father of two boys and two girls, Stephen experiences a lot of variety outside of work. He and his wife have embraced the challenges of being in two or three places at one time in order to support and encourage the individuality of their four children. He has supported each child by coaching their youth sports, participating in their interests and seizing those available days to experience the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Stephen may be seen at the baseball fields, basketball courts, soccer fields, and dance competitions. He enjoys being outdoors, especially on the water; fishing his favorite spots around the Puget Sound and local rivers. Stephen is active in his church leading small group studies for adults and youth.
