Stephen has been a Benedictine Oblate of Saint Meinrad Archabbey since 2011. The origin of his vocation goes back a decade earlier to retreats at The Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani - a Trappist monastery in Kentucky.

His Oblate apostolate is rooted in prayer, catechesis, apologetics and ecumenical dialog. He is an avid reader of Christian-Catholic history, spiritual classics, theology and scripture.

In his professional life, Stephen provides strategic and marketing counsel to senior executives of FORTUNE 500 companies.

He and his wife have two children.
