Born in Scotland, raised near London, Steve’s been performing since age 5. That was the year he started THEATRE and DANCE training and took a passionate, life long interest in MAGIC. His first job was playing the child Prince Chululongkorn in ‘THE KING AND I’. From those humble beginnings, Steve has appeared in over:
250 HOURS OF TELEVISION, A DOZEN MOVIES, COUNTLESS COMMERCIALS, TWO MULTI AWARD WINNING VIDEO GAMES, and of course, FOUR TV SERIES:
CROSSING JORDAN for NBC, as Criminologist ‘Nigel Townsend’ ,
NIKKI for the WB, as choreographer ‘Martine’.
I’M IN THE BAND for Disney, as 80‘s rock legend ‘Derek Jupiter’.
ESTATE OF PANIC for SYFY. (nominated for a Rose D’or)
Steve has carved out a unique place for himself in show business, constantly changing and morphing into a myriad of wild, quirky, funny, dangerous and always unique characters.
One thing’s for sure, you never get the same person twice, from rock stars to serial killers, to cross dressers to criminologists, to Victorian singing and dancing mustache twirling villains to knights in shining armor.
And it’s Steve’s morphic skill in character and voice that has kept him so much in demand in the highly competitive world of TV and Film.
Recently Steve made a big splash as Bronx based ‘Barry Greenhouse’ in the Robert Zemeckis movie THE WALK, and the serial killer in the feature MIDNIGHT MAN, as well as kicking as the slimy alcoholic womanizer in NBC’s awesome One Big Happy, the Egyptian Priest Aye in Mr. Peabody and Sherman, a dysfunctional Director on Big Bang Theory, or a vicious Cannibal on CSI, a Ghostly Doctor on Perception, the Billionaire/Beast on Beauty and the Beast, a cross dressing actor in love with Jane Leeves on Hot In Cleveland and the deliciously evil Les Camembert in Disney’s massive hit Teen Beach Movie, in addition to voices on Mickey and Road Racers, Turbo Fast, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Tinkerbell, Sofia The First and Bioware’s DRAGON AGE 3, reprising his acclaimed role of Alistair.
All that, while reoccurring on FOUR diﬀerent TV shows: Major Crimes, Mike and
Molly, Blunt Talk, and Anger Management.
In the world of variety and magic Steve is highly sought after and highly respected for his work.
A multi-award winner at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, Steve has literally toured the world performing and has created original, mind blowing magic for himself and other professional magicians, including a mind bending 22 hour course on his favorite trick, called C2P.
