Stephen spent the latter part of 13 years as the lead singer in metal/punk rock bands spanning from his teens to late twenties. Disenchanted, jaded and unfulfilled he began seeking a more sincere spiritual path which ultimately led him back to his heritage around the age of 28. He started his spiritual odyssey at Aish HaTorah Jerusalem in 2000. He returned to the States to continue his learning at Ohr Somayach in Monsey NY in 2001. Subsequently, he married and currently has three children. He lives in Savannah, Ga where he practices as a licensed psychotherapist.
