Steve left university with a degree in astrophysics and began his career as a seismologist. Back then, science was in a communications dark age and Steve saw the need for people who could convey ideas and capture people’s imagination. It was the start of his transition from analysing rock formations to crafting media content. He began his second career with a Mac SE, working for magazines such as Camerawork, Screen Digest and New Internationalist.
A move to Tokyo in 1995 led to several years as creative director for a custom publishing agency before his passion for food and magazines led to the creation of Eat Magazine, the award-winning food culture quarterly that put Eat Creative on the map. The magazine’s success attracted a large number of companies and organisations interested in Eat’s unique style of communication and transformed the company into the creative branding agency it is today.
Steve now oversees all Eat projects, ensuring that content is concise, focused and engaging. Steve is a fellow of the RSA in London.
