Steve was born and raised in New Rochelle, NY. Most of Steve’s tennis years were spent in the country club environment in New Rochelle. There is where he met Cesar Andrade and thus began his tennis career.

Captaining the New Rochelle High School team through his senior year, Steve began working part-time as an administrative assistant at Sportime Harbor Island in Mamaroneck, NY.  There is where he helped build the 800+ junior program and taught the 10 and underclasses.

Steve’s natural leadership and teaching skills quickly promoted him to the Assistant Summer Camp Director at Sportime, which included program development and managing his own staff. With experience, management, and administrative oversight, Steve was promoted to the 10 and Under Director of Sportime at Harbor Island.

Steve has demonstrated an uncanny ability to multitask, teach, manage and inspire our youngest athletes and at the same time coordinate the demanding teaching staff schedules of 17+ pros.
