He has testified as an expert witness in securities litigation, served as a panelist in investment conferences, and is registered under Series 7 and Series 63. Steven began investing in stocks at the age of 13 with the purchase of a utility stock featuring a ridiculously high dividend. A Texan by birth, his global meanderings include over 3 years in Tokyo, as well as significant time spent in Hong Kong, Thailand, India, and various locations in Europe and elsewhere. Other sojourns include a wander through the alleyways of Byzantium in Istanbul, as well as multiple motorcycle journeys, including an 8,000 mile solo trip through the US, an excursion across Australia, and most recently a 6,000 mile loop through Canada. His first real influence in investing was his father, a pilot by profession and still one of the shrewdest investors he has ever known. Steven's mentor in investment analysis was a legendary investor and fellow motorcyclist from Demopolis, Alabama who formerly co-managed (with a man later accused of breaking the Bank of England) one of the largest and most successful hedge funds of all time. His interests include motorcycles, travel, art, literature, music, snowboarding, and flying. He is a member in good standing of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 51.
