About Us

Most bullying and drug education programs do not impact youths for the long-term. If a student’s behavior and attitude isn’t change then nothing is accomplished. This one works!

Check out my references and Cambridge University’s prestigious Something About The Author. I have done over 3000 public school assemblies in 49 states in five countries. I tailor my programs for all age groups from elementary schools through universities and conventions. I speak at organizations, schools for students at risk, youth lockups and adult prisons.

My memoir,“In DeLorean’s Shadow,” and triple gold medal winning video “Out of the Night,” have dramatically changed lives. I am committed to helping youths and young adults to resolve bullying, drug, and alcohol problems. My older brother Jim committed suicide 22 years ago. I have since done many dozens of suicide interventions. I am all about providing hope a teen or young adult can truly believe in. To change a young mind one must touch a person’s heart and give them an alternative way to see those about them in a more understanding and forgiving  way.

For over five years I lived an odyssey of adventure as chief diver & expedition leader for the Cousteau Society, then I left the job of my dreams to be a motivational writer and speaker for public schools and youth groups.

Acquiring a quality education, strengthened with self-discipline and a focus towards good choices leads to happiness, adventure and a challenging life. Bad choices only leads to tragedy, despair and real-life nightmares. Steve knows about choices before joining the Cousteau team he was a defendant in the John DeLorean drug trial of 1982. His spiral downwards began with a marijuana mistake that unexpectedly threw him into the frightening world of organized crime.
