Originally from rural Eastern Washington State, Stephen spent his formative years raising pigs and figuring out how to entertain himself; needless to say, he’s an only child. At the University of Washington, Stephen opted to study Political Science and Spanish. Striving to accrue knowledge outside of the classroom, he interned for two Members of Congress and spent his entire junior year studying in Cádiz, Spain. After graduating, he worked as a Field Organizer and interned for a political strategy firm. Stephen hopes to attend law school in the coming years. He enjoys watching Jeopardy! and hiking with his Border Collies.
