Steve has directed for Verizon, the United Nations, Sesame Street, the ESPN ESPY awards, Bud Light Superbowl ads, and the Elmo Xbox game.
While Steve’s drawings and animations brought the company into existence, he began his career directing for the theater, where his productions won an NYIT award and a nomination, a Drama League fellowship, and a membership with the Lincoln Center directing lab. He also directed and developed Son of a Gun which was won the National Music Theatre Conference. ideaMachine has won 21 Telly Awards in 4 years and it has animated for numerous Fortune 500 companies.
Besides dreaming up stories and metaphors, Steve also loves working with artists like Uzo Aduba (Emmy Award winner), Joanna Gleason (3x Tony nom.), Elizabeth Davis (Tony nom.), Tom Green, and Keir Dullea (Golden Globe winner, 2001: Space Od.). But what Steve loves most about ideaMACHINE is “using art to help companies serve others."
