Steve was born and raised in New York City and has been residing in Hong Kong since 2006. He has lived the majority of his life as a non-believer constantly striving after goals which offered only fleeting satisfaction. In 2011, Steve felt a sense of calling from God leading him to attend Sunday service at a nearby church. Once he started going, Sunday mornings became the highlight of the week. He enrolled in an Alpha course and joined other fellowship and bible studies groups. After which, he finally understood what it meant to have a relationship with God – which has provided lasting satisfaction over anything he has ever experienced. Steve committed his life to Jesus Christ and was baptized in March 2013.
Currently taking a break from the finance industry, Steve is taking the opportunity to spend time with his wife and two boys, travel and study the bible. He’s opening himself to truly understand God’s plans for him and prays that he will have the strength and courage to act on God’s will. At the suggestion of his friend Sharon Soo, Steve thinks writing for Oxygen will help him continue to better develop his relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
