Steve spent 20 years as a business consultant with Accenture, leaving in 2002 to volunteer with non-profit organizations to help maximize social impact. Steve’s work includes serving on the board of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and roles with several other healthcare organizations including McLean Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Gosnold on Cape Cod. 


Steve took up photography initially as a hobby in 2012, and his own imagery became unexpectedly therapeutic when his family experienced difficult medical challenges. This realization led Steve to found the EDI Institute ( as a charitable organization. Through Expressive Digital Imagery® (EDI) and a specialized and first-of-its kind mobile app, the EDI Institute promotes healing, connection, and self-expression through digital imagery. To date, over 10,000 people have created more than 30,000 EDI images in settings including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, McLean Hospital, Yale New Haven Health, and the Gosnold Addiction Center on Cape Cod. Steve is passionate about EDI, and brings his business expertise, his commitment to helping others, and his belief in the power of imagery as a form of self-expression in leading efforts to integrate EDI into healthcare organizations nationally.


Steve’s own imagery seeks to convey the deep connection he has with Cape Cod, a place he and his family have cherished for over 30 years. A Brewster resident, Steve is represented locally by the FOCUS Gallery in Chatham and donates all proceeds from the sale of his work to the EDI Institute and to the Association to Preserve Cape Cod. Steve’s first book, The Brewster Flats, is a collection of emotive images chronicling the extraordinary visual spectacles that occur in this ever-changing landscape. Steve’s new book, The Cape Cod National Seashore, was just released this June.


Steve is a frequent speaker at conferences and camera clubs, and conducts retreats on Cape Cod focused on imagery as a form of self-expression with an emphasis on the overall photographic experience. Steve’s imagery can be viewed at
