Steve graduated from the College of the Holy Cross, where he majored in English, having discovered his lifetime love for the study of Christianity and Literature. He also played outfield for the baseball team, a career that culminated in his playing in the Hawaii Collegiate League, one of the country’s premier wood bat leagues.
Steve completed his graduate studies at the University of Dallas. He took an interdisciplinary degree in the Humanities, combining the pursuit of History, Philosophy, Theology, and Literature. His core coursework in Metaphysics, Ethics, and Logic, along with text seminars on Virgil, St. Augustine, St. Bonaventure, Spenser, and Austen nourished both his intellectual and spiritual life. Steve went on to satisfy his dual-concentration in Philosophy and Literature with independent research projects on Blaise Pascal’s theory of intuition and François Rabelais’s Christian Humanism.
A member of the Humanities Department, Steve brings an extensive background in boarding school life to Brook Hill, having previously taught at Blair Academy in New Jersey and Portsmouth Abbey School in Rhode Island. He and his wife, Elizabeth, a native Texan, live in Teaselville with their son, Anthony, and daughter, Gianna.
