Baking has always been Steven’s passion since he was a kid. As the oldest of three children, the Philadelphia native used baking to satisfy an insane sweet tooth and to make his family happy. His love for culinary was influenced by his grandmother, other family members and countless Saturday afternoons watching PBS cooking shows.
He began baking at home, rejecting box cake mixes and studying the art of true and authentic baking. Pretty soon, Steven became known throughout his West Philadelphia neighborhood for his cupcakes, muffins, and cookies. “I learned a legit hustle” he adds, which eventually led to baking birthday cakes and baby shower cakes. After graduating Overbrook High School, Steven attended and graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor Degree in Journalism and Communications. He was accepted at the renowned Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, with a focus on becoming a Pastry Chef.
“My journey has never been conventional” he laughs. Steven relocated to Phoenix, Arizona and took a position at an Urban Tea Loft as an assistant pastry chef. Soon after, he found clientele clamoring to pay for his delicious and scrumptious baked delights. Steven relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to reunite with his family. While in Atlanta, he created SRTMEDIA, a forward thinking public relations company offering services to entertainment and culinary clients. However, baking is still his passion and continues to bake weekly. “My trusty Kitchen Aid Mixer is used frequently,” says Steven.
After one year of residing in Atlanta, he returned to Phoenix in 2016 and is currently in the development stages of debuting his new baking blog “Gimme Some Sugar.” The blog will feature humor, baking tips, Steven’s most requested and new baking recipes interwoven with personal stories. Look for “Gimme Some Sugar” winter 2017.
