He now actively plays the piano at Victory Baptist Church in Marysville, MI. At the age of 13, Stephen attended a composition class taught by Dr. Seth Custer and took an immediate liking to arranging. Since then, he has arranged several instrumental and vocal works. In his spare time, Stephen loves improvising and creative writing.
