Steve started his career as a freshman in high school at El Dorado in Placentia. There as a sophomore, he helped the Golden Hawks achieve a CIF victory while playing in the goal. As a junior, Steve helped lead his team to a back to back CIF victory earning the honors of first team Orange Empire League, and second team all CIF. Steve also had the honor of being invited to play goalie with the "Born in 63" Team, a predecessor to today's National Cadet Team. As a senior, Steve helped bring his team to the CIF quarter finals and earned the honors of first team all league and first team all CIF. Steve made the transition from goalie to field player at Orange Coast College. There he broke the all time single season scoring record in his first year as a field player. The Lyon's Club of Costa Mesa awarded him top athlete of the year 1982.
From there, he joined one of the nationally top rated teams, UCSB. In the three years he played, the Gaucho's stayed in the top four ranking while holding the number one position numerous times. Though never achieving a national title, Steve had the privilege of playing with and against many world class athletes including many Olympians. Steve spent 10 years out of the water starting businesses and a large family. When his eldest decided to play water polo, Steve rekindled his love of the sport. He is elated to coach kids; three out of his six included, and give back to a sport that has brought him such joy.
