Business Lender, VP
"Success for me is collaborating to support a borrower. When I see our business liaison, lenders, underwriters, team leads, and various loan committees working together to get a loan completed and out the door, that is success."

Steven is the first point of contact for many of Craft3’s potential borrowers, and he thinks it’s the best seat in the house. “I get to hear new and excited business owners share their stories. People invest so much passion in their businesses. We can meet these business owners where they are and provide resources to help them learn how to meet their business goals.”

After nearly a decade in commercial banking Steven wanted to use his experience to help business owners who were underrepresented, systemically oppressed, and not versed in how business lending typically works. “I am proud of Craft3's commitment to underserved communities. We help with a lot of foundational pieces of a business owner's journey. Being an integral part of that journey makes me proud.”

Steven joined Craft3 in 2021 and volunteers with The Dougy Center, a world-renowned grief center for kids and families. He also serves as Board president for Northwest Housing Alternatives.
