I'm Steve, but most people know me as Savvy. I'm a seasoned marketer having worked with many global brands and across many different communication channels. I'm an INFP and tests have told me I’m a rational strategist. I was born on a scorching hot day in August.


Everyone wants to eat, but few are willing to hunt.

The Scarab Club is an artists' club, gallery, and studio in the Cultural Center Historic District of Detroit, Michigan, located at 217 Farnsworth Street, near the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Science Center.
