As an award-winning actor and producer, Steven is committed to creating projects with strong stories. Many of these are developed through the production company he founded in 1996, Firefly Theater & Films. Founded in 1996, Firefly first focused solely on stage, and its productions have won more than two-dozen awards for shows in Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Belfast, Off-West End London, and Off-Broadway. With a belief that films could be made with the same cross-disciplinary collaboration typically found in theater, Steven partnered with Oscar-winning producer Bruce Cohen to found a film collective, making 35 digital shorts from 2001 - 2005. The success of this effort led to the expansion of Firefly into Firefly Theater & Films, which has since screened award-winning films at dozens of festivals internationally. Firefly’s LA Film Festival-winning documentary, Make Believe – one of Ebert’s Top Docs of 2011 – is now being developed as a Broadway musical with Disney Theatricals, and it’s annual Unscreened series of new plays, produced in partnership with Haven Entertainment, has become an LA institution. Steven has taught numerous Shakespeare workshops to professional actors, public high school teachers, and to juvenile prisoners. He has lectured at LMU, the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, and the Harvard Medical School; has been a guest speaker at Yale; and is one half of the design company Dictator Goods, which was featured in the NY Times Style Magazine for its line of handcrafted, brazenly irreverent creations. Steven also speaks and writes often about the uncommon actor-producer path, including in his blog Come Hell or High Water.
