Stephen grew up in Warr Acres (the Big WA), a small suburb of Oklahoma City. He received his BA in Spanish from the University of Central Oklahoma and his MA in English, with a focus on linguistics and teaching English as a second language, from Oklahoma State University. His experience with international communities locally and abroad has grown in him a love for other cultures and languages (and foods!). Stephen married his beautiful bride Elizabeth in 2013, and they joined For the Nations in 2014. Elizabeth studied architecture at OSU and loves design, cooking, staying home with their son, Sam, and teaching summer art classes at For the Nations. Their shared hobbies include reading, arting, playing and listening to music, and eating.
