Steve studied Chemistry at Lehigh University, Cleveland State University and Wayne State University receiving his PhD in 1975. His passion for environmental work began as a graduate student when he helped organize the first Earth Day event in Cleveland after watching the Cuyahoga River burn. He is now a retired scientist/engineer with over 45 years of environmental experience. He currently volunteers for climate advocacy with Elders Climate Action where he is co-chair of their national policy committee. For over 12 years, Steve worked in many Russian regions and former Soviet Union countries on nuclear waste and non-proliferation for the DoD.
Steve first discovered Unitarian Universalism in the early 80s while living in Las Vegas. He and spouse Ann became very active in the UU Fellowship there and he has served as a UU board member and worked on numerous committees and projects over the past 40 years.
