Stephen grew up in the 1970s in Susquehanna Township, was a Boy Scout and played basketball. He always knew he wanted to open a restaurant and graduated from Penn State in three and a half years with a degree in hotel restaurant management. He worked for Interstate Hotel Management and the Marriott in San Francisco, and met his wife K.J. while in Philadelphia. The two returned to Harrisburg in 1998 and opened Stocks on 2nd as one of the first restaurants on what is now Restaurant Row. In 2009, the couple opened their second restaurant, Carley's Ristorante and Piano Bar, around the corner from Stocks on 2nd.
