I make connections that create opportunities.

Drawing on my years of experience in the design world I help designers and brands to refine their vision, define their trajectory, and then make personal, strategic recommendations and connections for the world’s most innovative designers, cutting edge galleries, relevant brands and leading cultural institutions.

Get in touch to get connected.
My experience & connections create successful collaborations. STEVEN
