With over 250 hours of TV and film to his name, Steve has carved out a unique place for himself in show business, constantly changing and morphing into a myriad of wild, quirky, funny, dangerous and always unique characters. You never get the same person twice, from rock stars to serial killers to cross dressers to criminologists to Victorian singing and dancing mustache twirling villains to knights in shining armor.
And it’s Steve’s morphic skill in character and voice that has kept him so much in demand in the highly competitive world of TV and Film.
Recently Steve made a big splash as Bronx based ‘Barry Greenhouse’ in the Robert Zemeckis movie THE WALK, the New York times calling him 'Steal Stealing', and in the feature MIDNIGHT MAN, as well as killing it as the slimy alcoholic womanizer in NBC’s One Big Happy, the Egyptian Priest Aye in Mr. Peabody and Sherman, a dysfunctional Director on Big Bang Theory, or a vicious Cannibal on CSI, a cross dressing actor in love with Jane Leeves on Hot In Cleveland and the deliciously evil Les Camembert in Disney’s massive hit Teen Beach Movie, in addition to voices on Turbo Fast for Netflix, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Mickey and the Road Racers, Disney’s Tinkerbell, Sofia The First and Bioware’s DRAGON AGE 3, in which he recreated his award winning role of King Alistair.
All this while working on many other aspects of multi-media:
Twice winning Lecturer of the Year at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. Creating mind blowing magic tricks for professional magicians, including an insane 22 hour, seven disc courses on one incredible piece of magic, a University level investigation into 200 years of history, performance and method for Steve's favorite trick, the trick with which he closes his live show.
Writing and releasing his graphic novel, CRIMEWORLD with graphic artist Dan Frey.
Writing, creating, producing and performing his new, live one man show: LIFE AND OTHER DECEPTIONS
As producer/writer Steve has sold numerous projects, including:
‘THE BELIEVERS, the absolutely almost true adventures of Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’ to NBC ( as co-creator and Executive Producer).
‘THE GOURMET DETECTIVE’ to powerhouse Muse and Hallmark Channel (as Executive Producer)
‘FORTY ELEPHANTS’ to Lionsgate Television, and TNT Network with Simon West attached to direct and Steve writing, creating and Executively Producing with partner, film maker, Chris Philpott and brilliant British show runner Lizzie Mickery.
A LITTLE HISTORY:
Born in Scotland, raised near London, Steve has been performing since age 5. That was the year he started THEATRE and DANCE training and took a passionate, life long interest in MAGIC. His first job was playing the child Prince Chululongkorn in ‘THE KING AND I’. From those humble beginnings, Steve has appeared in over: 250 HOURS OF TELEVISION, A DOZEN MOVIES, COUNTLESS COMMERCIALS, TWO MULTI AWARD WINNING VIDEO GAMES, and of course, FOUR TV SERIES:
CROSSING JORDAN for NBC, as Criminologist ‘Nigel Townsend’ , NIKKI for the WB, as choreographer ‘Martine’. I’M IN THE BAND for Disney, as 80‘s rock legend ‘Derek Jupiter’. ESTATE OF PANIC for SYFY. (nominated for a Rose D’or)
Steve has performed stand-up in LAS VEGAS at the RIVIERA and HARRAHS Hotels and at Hollywood’s world famous MAGIC CASTLE, where he was awarded the coveted CLOSE-UP MAGICIAN OF THE YEAR two years in a row and most recently Lecturer of the Year two years in a row and was a smash success MC-ing the Magic Castle Award show.
Steve has travelled the world, performing in almost every country from Alaska to Borneo to India. It’s been a wild ride, at 18 years old Steve DJ’d in Europe, running the bar and entertainment in a nightclub in the former Yugoslavia, and then escaping to Italy when war broke out. He’s also had the honor to entertain troops all over the world and recently made a splash re-inventing himself to play the role of ex Pro Wrestler EKO in the Pulitzer West Coast Premiere of THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY at the GEFFEN THEATRE IN LOS ANGELES .
