About Stephen

I'm a seasoned technology strategist and human-centric problem solver. I'm a second-year MBA student at the University of Chicago and the Graduate Program in Healthcare Administration & Policy. I'm also the co-founder and product lead of the Brink Election Guide, a non-partisan political technology venture that simplifies the voting process for people with disabilities. The Election Guide has been featured in MSNBC and, and garnered endorsements from Senators Tammy Duckworth and Cory Booker, and the co-authors of the American's with Disabilities Act.

Before attending the University of Chicago, I was a senior full-stack developer, the analytics practice lead, and a member of the DevOps group at a boutique software design and development consultancy called Table XI in Chicago. I built and led dozens of custom web, mobile and design projects or products for organizations like The Field Museum of Chicago,, Outcome Health, The SpiceHouse, Vested World, Wellspring (Flintbox), and several healthcare, fintech, IOT and automotive startups where my work is covered under an NDA.

In 2016, I founded an education and behavioral health social venture called Striving to support the intellectually and developmentally disabled (IDD) community. I began my career at Houlihan Lokey, working on mergers and acquisitions for industrial companies.

I graduated Cum Laude from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business and volunteer as a member of the Opportunity Knocks Auxiliary Board, a non-profit serving the IDD community in the Chicagoland-area. I love traveling and to-date, I've been to 44 U.S. states, four Canadian provinces, and 27 countries. I also had the triathlon bug for several years, having completed over a dozen triathlons ranging from Olympic distance races to an Ironman, and in 2015, I was named an Ironman All-World Athlete.
