Steve founded HCBG in 1997, following a career as a software engineer. His love of design and construction started as a high school and college student working on framing and finish carpentry crews building homes around New England. He then earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Cornell University and, in the years after college, honed his management skills at Hewlett-Packard, a company well known for its excellence in project management while inspiring individual innovation. During these years, Steve kept his interest in construction fresh by building a custom timber frame home for his family, and working on an antique home restoration on Cape Cod. His exceptional eye for detail is reflected in the systems he’s developed throughout the company to ensure an unprecedented level of quality, creativity and accuracy. Steve served on the Board of Directors for Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity for six years, overseeing the 2012 and 2014 Builders Blitz. Free time is spent biking, hiking and enjoying other outdoor pursuits.
