Early Life and Education
Stephen was born and raised in Scarborough, a suburb or Toronto, Ontario. He is the 4th of 5 children, having two brothers and two sisters. His parents had left the East Coast of Canada when they were in their early twenties to move to Toronto to give their children a head start in life that they never had. They were determined to provide everything their children needed as a recipe for success, and the only thing they knew themselves. A strong work ethic, a humble up bringing, and of course, an unwavering spiritual relationship with God and the Church. These traits were instilled in Stephen from a very young age. Stephen was determined to use his parents sacrifices as a platform to provide for himself, his family, and for everyone who knows him as well as being taught by him.
Stephen is married to Kate and they have three children. Stephen’s parents shared one common goal in life. It was to raise children to the best of their ability. They weren’t satisfied with giving their children an opportunity, they wanted the best opportunities possible, so they sacrificed their dreams so that their children could realize theirs, and in turn, they would be happy living out their dreams via their children. And now, Stephen and Kate instill the same values in their children as they were brought up with, minus the financial burdens. They believe that hard work, honesty, faith, sound education, and most importantly, treating everyone fairly, and with an open heart will be the difference maker when it comes to their children’s success in life.

Taking his parents advice, he went to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree from McGill University. He focused on economics and was turned down by the architecture program at McGill, adding fuel to his fire. While studying economics, Stephen was a stand out athlete for the McGill Redmen Football team. Earning all the top awards, and having a stellar playing career, he was recruited and ultimately signed on to play professional football for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Montreal Alouettes. The highlight of his career was playing against his older brother on three separate occasions. With his dreams of playing
