Stephen is currently a senior at Wheaton
College in Illinois. His major includes Anthropology and
Psychology. Besides writing songs Stephen enjoys
one-on-one chats, books, and any laidback activity. Some of his non-music goals include owning a goat,
becoming a Peace Corps volunteer, attending graduate school, and
eventually becoming a missionary.
"The hardest part about writing a
song for me is the vocal lines. I can't sing to save my
life, so I can't hear what I want to be singing to know if it
will work or not." Of all the songs Room 115 has
written Something Right and Millennium Summer are his
favorites. "I think we are heading more toward songs like
Something Right, but I hope we don't lose the beauty in songs
like Millennium Summer." He also commented, "I
like the direction our songs have taken, I just wish Chris and I
could get together more."
Stephen has been playing guitar since the eighth grade.
His early influences were Nirvana, Green Day, Alice in Chains,
and Soundgarden. Today, Stephen is inspired by the works
of Rich Mullins, Caedmon's Call, Third Eye Blind, Counting
Crows, and Matchbox 20.
