ALL ABOUT STEVEN

By then, he had already started composing music and immediately knew this was what he wanted to do, even more than studying saxophone. This lead to Steven studying Classical Composition at the Conservatory of

Steven was admitted to the master program of Berklee College of Music, scoring for film, television and video games wich allowed him to build and sharpen the skills in instrumentation, orchestration and recording.
