His passion and commitment to delivering successful projects spearheaded him to become MWM ‘s leader in the firm’s most complex project to date, the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences. He Believes that the most successful projects are not by chance but by design and that each project has the opportunity to transform/enhance its user’s experience.

Stephen considers golfing, building hotrods and spending precious time with his family as some of his favorite hobbies. Stephen is reminded and inspired by his favorite JFK quote, “We Choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things. Not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”
