With over two decades working in state and local politics, Steven has amassed a wealth of experience both within the political sphere as a legislative staffer as well as a consultant and with some of the largest companies, school districts and nonprofits in the state.
Steven began his career as a staffer at the Arizona House of Representatives working as a legislative analyst. By the age of 24, he became one of the youngest policy advisors providing guidance on a wide range of legislative issues, including budget, healthcare, banking, insurance, energy, government, infrastructure, and immigration.
For the past decade, Steven has worked as a contract consultant and lobbyist serving a wide range of diverse clientele. In this time, he’s worked with the state’s largest employer, physician group, and school district, along with nonprofit organizations of all sizes.
