Steven is an architectural designer based in Tokyo, Japan. He grew up in Cupertino, California and moved to New York in 2011 to gain a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute, kickstarting his career by working for design firms in New York City.

He worked for firms SOM (Chicago) Leong Leong, Lynch Eisinger Design, and Efficiency Lab for Architecture.

During the Covid pandemic he began independent work on urban park projects to revitalize public spaces in New York. Gotham Park and Blue Park are two parks that are currently open and being used in the city.

Steven decided to move to Tokyo to learn from Japanese architecture and open doors to a past life inspired by ancient shrines, nature, and innovative contemporary design.
