Originally from North Carolina, Steve moved to New Orleans to attend Tulane University. Beer money lacking, he pursued a job as a banquet bartender at an event space on St. Charles Ave. Steve had to fabricate his work experience to get this job, much to the chagrin of his fellow bartender on the first night that he worked. Ever since then, he has worked diligently to make sure that he no longer is a burden to his co-workers behind the bar.
Steve has had the opportunity to work at several excellent establishments throughout New Orleans including Victory Bar, Restaurant R'evolution, and the Ace Hotel. He currently works at Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's Latitude 29 and Twelve Mile Limit. He also produces a podcast with co-host T. Cole Newton called A Round with Steve and Cole that focuses on what it is like being a bartender in New Orleans. His major career highlights include being called the "Shadow King of New Orleans" one time and inventing the Cynar Colada.
