Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Steve began his life as an actor after graduating from the University of Queensland with an degree in journalism, Australian history and drama Steve began his working life as an actor.
After two years with the Queensland Theatre in a variety of major onstage roles, among them turns as Errol Flynn and D.H. Lawrence, Steve began a four-year stint selling copiers with Xerox; emerging as one of the firm’s top salesman in 1984.
A decision to audition for a spot on the Network Ten talent show Star Search in 1985, changed everything. His side-splitting impression of rock guru Ian “Molly” Meldrum went ballistic and by mid-1986 he’d put his career in copying behind him, his skills as a comedian now in peak demand. After winning a RAWARD for the best newcomer in Australian Metropolitan Radio in 1989, Steve took it upon himself to write the first history of what is now the National Rugby League, a bestseller, that went to a fourth edition with the competition’s centenary in 2008, called “The Finals: 100 Years of National Rugby League Finals”.
This book first published in 1991, led to a 20-year stint with the Nine Network as a news presenter and sportswriter , during which time Steve continued to create brilliance for his bulging list of clients who utilised his ability to provide hilarious presentations for customers and staff. With a diary filled with engrossing challenges, Steve has recently partnered with Jodie Bache-McLean and Cynthia Morton to present Head, Heart and Body: The Master Class, a workplace experience designed to help workers feel better about their lives and what they do at work. It has opened up a whole range of opportunites for an incomparable performer who has brought enormous enjoyment to the thousand of people he has touched along the way.
