In the early 2000s, he began his partnership with RCI Development and has been part of the BND team since 2010, working on such notable projects as the AWB Condos and the Centlivre Apartments.
After graduating in 1984 from Miami of Ohio with a Bachelor of Science degree in business, Steve started Ridgewood Builders, a custom home construction company that continues to be successful today.
