Steve was born and raised in Greeley, Colorado, where he grew up hiking, skiing, mountain biking, and riding horses. After spending four years at CU Boulder (GO Buffs!) and a year in Germany (Prost!), he managed to emerge with a college degree.

In 2013 Steve moved to Bend with his wife Lisa, son Jackson, and 3 pugs to open Jordan Ramis PC’s Central Oregon office. He practices in the firm’s Dirt Law practice group with an emphasis on solving water law and real estate challenges. Steve believes deeply in giving back to his community.
