Steve is a doctoral candidate at the University of Denver where he studies social class and rural issue in higher education. He works for an EdTech company designing online courses and teaches research methods to online students. He lives in Denver, Colorado, USA, with his partner Mandell, his dog Kai, and thanks to the pandemic, a bunch of fish. I had the honor to listen to his stories of being a queer in the Higher Education field and I learned a lot from him.
