Stephen spent more than 20 years in mainstream media before breaking away to start his own multimedia marketing business in 2010. He now specializes in providing professional online video services to a company, or individual, and turning any website into a businesses' own, personal, TV Network.
Stephen had anchored, reported, produced and written nearly 20,000 stories for network affiliate TV (CBS/NBC) around the country. He spent most of that time as a Sports Anchor/Reporter/Director in GA, AZ and TX before moving back to MA in 2006 and switching to News reporting for NECN in Boston.
Stephen began his career as a print journalist in his hometown of Worcester, MA back in 1987 before hosting radio talk shows in TN and GA. He has, literally, done it all and is truly multimedia.
Stephen began teaching Journalism courses at Emerson upon moving back in 2006 and has worked with students in Radio Producing and Reporting (JR 305), Electronic News Gathering (JR 419) and Foundations of Journalism (JR102). He says he continues to be amazed at the amount of talent that comes through his Emerson classrooms each semester.
While working in the Boston market Stephen covered the historic 2006 gubernatorial race (Deval Patrick became the first-ever African American Governor-elect in MA), Ted Kennedy's seizure in 2007, the murder trials of Neil Entwistle (convicted of killing his wife and unborn child) and Christopher McCowen (convicted of killing noted fashion writer Christa Worthington on Cape Cod in 2002), as well as the Red Sox World Series title in 2007, the Celtics championship in 2008 and several other major, local, stories.
in 2003, while working for the NBC affiliate in Central TX, Stephen was at the forefront of the investigation into the Baylor University Men's Basketball murder/scandal. Utilizing inside sources he broke several aspects of that national story and also appeared in a documentary featuring one of the worst collegiate scandals in this nation's history.
Stephen's also taught at UMass-Boston and Quincy College and loves sharing his many real-life experiences with students interested in pursuing their dreams and goals.
