Stephen trained through Second City and UCB. He wrote, cast, produced, and starred in a sold-out sketch comedy show in New York City, "Casual Ambiguity." He then wrote a young adult/urban fantasy novel, "It Would Like Suck To Die On A Tuesday: A Fairy Tale" (as yet unpublished). He also mistakenly graduated from the University of Chicago Law School. Afterward, Stephen wrote and filmed a short film, "Hold The Mayo." Apparently, not wanting to travel far to act, Stephen created "There Are No Second Takes In Life...Take 2" with Season 1 filmed on location...in his apartment. Season 2 is currently being filmed...again in his apartment. Stephen's most recent digital short, "The Powerpuff Girls: The Teen Years" is now online. Stephen's works have screened at such places as the L.A. Comedy Festival, L.A. Webfest, ATL Webfest, East Lansing Film Festival, New Haven International Film Festival, and Hamilton Film Festival.
