He was born on December 10, 1984 in Boise in Idaho in the United States.
He has six siblings and they all trained some sport from their early age since their father was a coach and athletic director at high school.
As far as he can remember he and his brothers were working out, doing push-ups in the morning, benching and a lot more. His father motivated them to try out sports until they found the one that fits the best.
When he speaks about his family he always emphasizes that they are a “very athletic family”.
By the time he was 10, Steve was already using weights more seriously than many older teenagers.
Steve was a legend very soon after he started high school. He has set all the school’s gym records and was the most muscular pupil in the whole school. That brought him huge popularity amongst girls.

After high school he enrolled Dixie State College where he played football for their team. At the end of the studies he hasn’t earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Studies of Biology and Psichology. He finished it a few years later, when he returned to the college because of it.
After the divorce, Steve turned to bodybuilding more seriously than ever. He was invited to the Boise fit expo’s fit body contest where he won the first place without much problem. After this push, he started seeking that kind of competitions in order to try out his limits.
He joined a competition held in Las Vegas and sponsored by “Muscle & Fitness” magazine and he trained day and night to win in this competotion. So, he did.

The reason for this was the fact that after he and his wife moved back to their hometown she found work really fast and he was “nowhere”: he was gonna finish studies and get his degree online but soon lost interest and he stopped playing football and didn’t enter NFL.
His wife was unsatisfied because she earned all the money for them. Very soon after they came back, she filed for divorce and Steve came back to is parent’s house.
To get better and bring himself out of depression he decided to dedicate to bodybuilding and lifting weights. It was his way of letting out anger and sadness because of the divorce.
