Without the traditional family unit to support him, Steven sacrificed most of his own necessities in order to see his only son receive a proper education. Part of the education imparted was the importance of living a life of compassion through veganism.
Although, Steven currently works full time as a truck driver, he always finds time to take part in activism, hoping one day make to make a career out of it.
Currently, Steven is a contributor to the Vegans of Queens group as well as Co-Organizer for the Queens chapter of Anonymous for the Voiceless. As Co-Organizer for Anonymous for The Voiceless, Steven organizes demonstrations, advocates for animal rights, engages in public out-reach and street activism to educate the public.
Through his social media accounts, Steven has created several animal rescue fundraisers that have successfully raised enough money to relocate farm animals safely to their new homes.
Steven is hands on and passionate about his rescues, ensuring that each animal he rescues feels safe and loved from the moment they are in his care. Most recently, Steven rescued two potbellied pigs that were in need of a forever home. The two pigs he renamed "Okja" & "Mija" (in honor of the Netflix film with animal liberation being at the core of the film).
