New member to the board, Steven is originally from Mount Vernon though was raised and attended college in the Hudson Valley, NY. Back in the Pacific Northwest to be closer to family, Steven has developed a passion for the market due to his interactions with local purveyors during his career in the restaurant industry on the East Coast. Creating seasonal menus allowed Steven to meet and learn from members of the community that he would otherwise not have had the fortune of interacting with.
Steven has since transitioned out of the restaurant business, though he counts his time developing and managing various start-ups as intrinsic to his understanding of local business and the relationships they forge. Now in sales with a boutique yacht manufacturer, Steven is thankful for the chance to stay engaged with his passion for interesting ingredients and especially the fascinating people that bring them to the table through the Mount Vernon Farmers Market.
Steven is an avid trail runner, currently training for a 50k Ultra-Marathon; along with extended-trip sea kayaking and downhill mountain biking.
