Growing up in Calgary, Steve enjoyed travelling to the Rockies to enjoy their natural beauty, including the lakes and rivers. He has fond memories of his grandparents’ lakeside cabin and has always had an interest in being a good environmental steward.

Steve views water as being ubiquitous to so many industries, especially in his home province of Alberta, including oil and gas and agriculture. Recognizing the value and scarcity of water, Steve wants to contribute to its responsible utilization, thereby protecting our water resources for people, the environment, and industry now and in the future.
