Steve has always enjoyed sports and in his younger days, was a skilled player of sports such as Hockey and Basketball (he's a bit rusty now though). These days he keeps fit by weight training and swimming at the gym along with regular jogging.
He loves reading, particularly fiction. In his high school days his favourite subject was English and one of his pass-times was role-playing with friends. This love of literacy combined with a fertile imagination, spawned several story ideas that flourished in his mind over the years. Eventually, these stories began to take form as he wrote his first novel Dawn of Kolaen. You can find out more about Steve's novels and other works of fiction in the Novels section of this site.
When Steve's not exercising, DJing, working, writing, sleeping or spending time with his family, he's usually in front of his computer. Probably playing games, which is one of his favourite ways to waste time that could be spent more productively.
