From his campaign web site at

"Stephen attended Wilfrid Laurier University before completing his law degree in 1977. He has enjoyed a successful legal practice for 28 years, learning to analyze and effectively advocate his positions, and providing quality affordable legal assistance for hundreds of ordinary Canadians. Stephen is grateful for the trust that so many of his neighbours have placed in his experience and judgment over the years.

"Stephen's legal background allowed him to assist many other organizations as a Board member or advisor. He was elected as a School Trustee from 1994 until 2003, serving Kitchener in that role for nine years.

"Stephen was introduced by the Knights of Columbus to many people serving the community with their time and talent. Stephen has been active in many community groups including serving on the board of Big Brothers. He has also been a lector at his church since 1967.

"Stephen met his wife Sharon in Law School, married in 1976, and has been blessed with three wonderful children, Nathan, Adam, and Laura. They made their home in Kitchener, where Stephen was born and raised.
