Steven was born in Adelaide in 1962 and moved to Yorke Peninsula when he was 4 years old.

After completing his education at Yorketown Area School, Steven worked in local government for what would be some 27 years. Over that time Steven was Chief Executive Officer at the Orroroo/Carrieton/Peterborough Council, then General Manager of a Shire Council in the Hunter Valley, NSW, before returning to Yorke Peninsula in 2000 to become CEO of the District Council of Yorke Peninsula.

Steven married Donna in 1988.  They have lived in Yorketown, Orroroo, and the Hunter Valley and since 2000 in Maitland, while raising their two children, Tyler and Kelsey.

In late 2005 Steven resigned from the District Council of Yorke Peninsula to contest the State election as the Liberal Candidate for Goyder and had the great honour of being elected on 18 March 2006.  As the Member for Goyder he is privileged to represent in the South Australian Parliament the 30,000 people who live in Goyder, an electorate of some 10,000 square kilometres.

Since being elected to Parliament as the Member for Goyder in 2006, Steven has seen Weatherill-Labor’s mismanagement of the State Budget deliver the nation’s highest tax burden for local families and businesses, to the detriment of competitiveness and our economy as a whole.

Steven is committed to growing economic and employment opportunities for South Australia by providing more efficient government and reducing taxes that are a drag on the economy and employment, such as Land Tax.

Having spent most of his life in the regional communities, Steven is fighting for a fairer deal for rural South Australians especially our farmers, the backbone of our great State, who have again been forgotten by a city centric Labor Government.
