Steve is a seasoned veteran in the world of structural composites with over 3 decades leading engineering and manufacturing development for some of the most advanced aircraft and systems the world depends on today. His career began developing innovative veterinary surgical devices, then transitioned into aerospace, where development of then new carbon composite materials was being applied on the B1-B bomber and Space Shuttle. His work at a major military airframer was instrumental in developing and implementing advanced carbon composite materials and processes on the F-117, F-22 and F-35 fighters. He was the single point of contact for Out-of-Autoclave Curing Technologies where he developed materials and processes that promoted rapid cycle times at substantially lower costs than traditional manufacturing methods. He has since expanded application of these innovative technologies into the commercial aircraft, industrial and recreational markets, most recently serving as Regional Sales Manager for one of the world’s largest composite material suppliers. He is a published author and has been awarded numerous patents for his developments in composites and structures.
