Steve is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. He received a BA in 2007 in sociology and Spanish from Bowling Green State University, also in Ohio, so he's excited to be spending the next several years in a different state. Between his BA and beginning the program at Indiana University, he spent a year in Cincinnati serving with the Notre Dame Mission Volunteers Americorps in Cincinnati. Sociologically, he's interested in sexuality, gender, identity, language and possibly political sociology. These are likely to change and expand. Non-sociologically, he likes to spend his time reading science fiction novels, watching collected seasons of television shows, going out with friends to bowl, mini golf, and identify 24-hour restaurants, and traveling.
