After decades helping Fortune 500 brands grow their bottom line, I decided to focus on work that challenges the notion that purpose and profit are mutually exclusive. Today, I bring consumers and brands together through shared interest in a better world.  

MISSION - steve

One day I created a campaign idea for a global Fortune 500 insurance company. It changed many lives, including my own. The intent, of course, was to convince consumers that insurance was a critical component to a richer life. But, this campaign did more than sell merch. It sparked a dormant fuse inside people to embrace risk, instead of running away from it. To push fear aside, just long enough to take a chance on themself, and pursue their dreams, big or small. Whether it was opening a pizza parlor in a pandemic, investing in an idea no one else would touch with a ten-foot pole or just putting themselves out there by asking someone their best friend was convinced was “out of their league” on a date. After receiving hundreds of letters from individuals thanking the brand for inspiring them to change their mindset from fear to a positivity bias, this campaign helped me realize the power of mass communication and the effect it can have to help elevate each other and the world we live in. 

I co-founded Dreamboat Group where a curious and diverse menagerie of creative directors, designers, film makers, writers and photographers collaborate with innovative brands and agencies to find unorthodox ways of approaching contemporary issues. We align interests of the consumer with that of the brand by activating ideas that serve a greater good. 

I co-founded goodmetal, the first ever lifestyle brand dedicated to eliminating gun violence in America. Goodmetal takes metal from decommissioned guns and transforms it into fashion wear, consumer goods and art expressions. The goodmetal Foundation partners with academic institutions to fund epidemiological research on gun violence, educational programs for the communities hit hardest by gun violence, and innovative initiatives that go beyond the traditional solutions offered today. We believe the gun fight will only be won by arming the cause with creativity and a fresh perspective. 

"A map will get you from point A to B, creativity will get you anywhere."
