  1. Steve was not just a great producer but an incredibly generous and compassionate man. I was lucky to be assigned to the same producing fellow group and we bonded instantly. Later when Steve found out I was living on dollar store mac-n-cheese he made it part of his daily routine to take me out for a nourishing meal, humbly shrugging off any thanks. He remained a steadfast friend despite great distance, a true mensch who never complained about his agonizing illness, saying only “it’s the card I was dealt.” Although I’ve been told he was in pain at the end, he never mentioned it in the last email he sent, on the day before he passed. In an often cutthroat industry he was a beacon of honor, civility, intelligence and taste.

  2. Steve & Joni and I used to work in the trenches together on music videos when I was choreographing many of them in the early days at Propaganda. Steve was a human’s human, he had warmth, wit, tremendous intelligence, and an innate sense of compassion. He was also a visionary. I would run into him over the years and was always received with a great generosity of spirit, a trait I see present in so many of the people he surrounded himself and worked with. I think that along with his stellar films, that is part of his legacy. I feel so privileged to have known him.
