Steve is the Type programme manager at Adobe in San Jose, California. After years of misspent youth focussing on the glamorous field of international canoe racing, Steve finally received his B.Des. from NSCAD University in his native Halifax, Canada. An advertising and design career followed in both Canadian and Mexican agencies. Eventually, Steve realised he was becoming more interested in type, and less in everything else. Therefore, he moved to England and received his masters in typeface design at the University of Reading. Steve has travelled extensively throughout Yucatan, Mexico, to research his dissertation on Mayan writing reform.
