Born on an American naval base in Rota, Spain, Stephen has lived in 3 countries and 4 U.S. states. He attended Judson University in Elgin, Illinois where he studied Communications/Media Studies and Graphic Design. Stephen worked as a desktop publisher and database programmer for a division of Mitsubishi in the Chicago area before moving to Chillicothe in 2002 to start Westside Media.
In addition to overseeing the business, Stephen is deeply involved in all aspects of the design process. He loves bringing projects from concept to finished product. Whether it's a new website, a new logo, or a new print design, he loves to create. Stephen's favorite part of his job is making connections with other businesses and watching them succeed. Westside Media has been blessed with the opportunity to work closely with hundreds of clients and we are thankful every day for that.
If this design career doesn't work out, Stephen plans on picking up where he left off in the early 90s as the greatest rapper east of Dayton.
