Think Stephen is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Norbert Horvath
We worked together  •  Technical Advisor, Feast, Inc and CTO / Founder, Vemba.
Stephen is demanding and does not rest until a clear and succinct path is found. He is detail oriented and looks at all options, even outsi ... de of the obvious to identify the best path forward. He is a collaborator that can convince even competitors to work together for the greater common good. He is a natural leader.
Garrick Tiplady
We worked together  •  Co Founder, VSBLTY and CEO, Vemba. McGill grad.
Stephen has all of the characteristics of an entrepreneur that I would personally back. He is intelligent, driven, rapidly sees market oppor ... tunities. Culturally, Stephen builds great teams and delivers results. I would back him completely.

Rhianwen Benner
We worked together  •  Senior Director, Business Development, Common Sense Media. Previously Director of Partnerships and Business Development, Common Sense Media.
In working with Stephen for over a year it was evident that he is a smart, strategic, out of the box thinker. He is incredibly creative, foc ... used and dedicated to his work and drove results for our partnership. I have no doubt Stephen would be successful in an entrepreneurial role.
Zach Kazin
We worked together  •  Manager, Digital Video Programming, Red Bull Media House. Previously Video Programming Manager, AOL. NYU grad. NYU grad.
Stephen and I worked together at Aol, Inc. for two years (2012-2014). We together lead our Programming Management for all partners working w ... ith Aol On. Together, we established the role of a Programming Manager and how in that role, we both facilitated day to day client success, and continued expanded our roles to grow accounts and our overall business. Stephen found many ways to grow his roll outside the main day to day of our jobs, becoming a key voice in the processes for on-boarding content partners, working with business development, and proving how valuable he was to the entire organization and its growth. As he moved on to Newsy (after I had left for Red Bull Media House), I can see exactly why he was snagged for that role. Stephen is a hardworking, smart, no-bs professional, he is about as easy to get along with as anyone in the field. In working with Stephen, I can confidently say that he would be a valuable team member and leader for any entrepreneurial endeavor.
