|Introduction||Stephen is one of those people that loves music, art, politics, literature, his Catholic Faith, writing, reading, worthwhile discussions, traveling, staying in, going out, building fires, eating mangoes, making tea, cooking pasta, talking with those close to him, and living life to the fullest. You know, one of those people. |
His points of view are often contrarian, but not for that sake alone, but because so much of society has decided to not critically think through its daily existence. What he writes here or anywhere is not dogma, but the opinion of one man, open to debate and needful of discussion and disagreement.
God gave Stephen two ears and one tongue and he labors to hear much before speaking (or writing) much, though his natural inclination is much otherwise.
Stephen spent 4 years in the US Marine Corps Reserve as a Nuclear Biological Chemical Defense Specialist. He holds a BA in English Literature with minors in Catholic Studies and Business from Rockhurst University. He also holds a Masters in Business Administration from St. Louis University.
