Steve joined the Orinda Academy Board in 2017 and is Secretary and Finance Chair. Steve is a graduate of the Athenian School in Danville, and served on the Athenian board of Trustees for many years where he was on the Facilities, Finance, and Executive committees at various times. Steve and his wife Vickie, live in Piedmont and have three high school students, one of whom is a freshman at Orinda Academy.
Steve has a BSEE from Swarthmore College, and started off designing computers and cancer treatment physics machines, then transitioned to software, and has been a software development leader for many years at various companies throughout the bay area.
Prior to having kids Steve actively raced sailboats in San Francisco. Now he enjoys day sailing, skiing, scuba-diving, photography, hiking, travel and bike riding — almost anything that gets him (and the kids) outdoors on the weekends.
Steve’s son has greatly enjoyed and benefitted from his time at Orinda Academy. Steve joined the Orinda Board to help further its financial strength and to help lay plans for a sustainable and promising future.
