After working in Australia with documentary film maker Ken Burns, he returned to London to work on a range of large regeneration projects including London’s Bankside, the Thames Gateway, Deptford and Brixton City Challenges. Steve then advised on a series of large scale Government programmes including the New Deal and the University for Industry and has established and led three start-up businesses and been employed as an advisor to Channel 4, MIT, Microsoft, the RSA, the BBC, PWC and the Department for Education and Skills, Enterprise UK, NESTA and UnLtd.
