Steve is the founder of the Knowledge Laboratories and its network of enterprises. 

He’s been moonlighting for years. Mostly in the dark. Write. Write. Write. Before first light.

Crafting messages “literally bottled and set adrift from KnowWhere Atoll.”

It’s taken him eight years just to bring Volume One: The Knowledge Path Series and its five books into the light of day. Is it because he’s ADD? Maybe.

While he doesn’t see ghosts in the dark, he sees patterns. And opportunities.  And, well, ways of tying people, places, things, ideas and trends together in new and original ways.

All of which came in handy during his day job in the Executive MBA program for The Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine.

He advised millennial, midlife and empty-nest executives pursuing new career, entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial opportunities.

Helping them get unstuck by seeing their situations differently.

“How to Live, Love, Work, Play, Invest and Leave a Legacy.”

 “Steve is one of the most innovative and competent professionals I have encountered. His mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge enable him to provide highly impactful support to his clients. Most importantly, Steve is a consummate human being.”

J.Z. Executive Consultant

“…market intelligence, industry trends and networking contacts. His client’s have nothing but great things to say about Steve. Steve is a bright and energetic executive coaching professional who understands the truly unique needs of the executive. A real pro in my book!”

S.P. Sr. Recruiter

“His expertise is vast and he truly cares about the people with whom he works. He is an out-of-the-box thinker and a pleasure to work with. His high-level energy and unsurpassed ethics place Steve in his own league.”

D.G. Vice President of Marketing

“He is knowledgeable and well connected. His passion for knowledge management and human systems is akin to my own but I think what I appreciate most about him is his ability to embody both the positive (aspiring notions) and the practical (life’s difficult truths) at the same time.”

M.A. CIO

“… identify new paths or aspirations, and knows exactly which business contacts would be  most beneficial for each. His work is a perfect fit and I highly endorse Steve’s work.”

D.B. Manager, North America Business Process Improvement and Implementation

“I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to meet and work with him over the past years. His people connection, organizational knowledge in change management and experience; especially his ability to help people, amaze me.”
