The climate emergency and our response to it are Steve's primary focus as a documentary filmmaker and photographer. In 2016, he co-directed, produced and edited 'DIVEST!', a feature-length concert film that chronicles the origins of the fossil fuel divestment movement. He contributed cinematography and editing to the award-winning HBO documentary 'How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can't Change' which premiered at Sundance 2016. From the campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline to the Valve Turners direct action, his work has centered around movement-building and keeping fossil fuels in the ground. Earlier in his career, Steve was a biologist in the Gulf coast region working on research and conservation of coastal bird populations. He holds an M.S. in Environmental Policy from Bard College and a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Prescott College.
