Out of habit, he still counts the carbohydrate exchanges in his own meals and snacks. Steve is highly passionate about combining his knowledge in diabetes and sports nutrition to assist people in maintaining their participation in exercise without the fear of compromising their diabetes management. 

Steve keeps active by running and lifting heavy things. In his previous life, he was known to be a rock star barista. He apologises in advance for his terrible dad jokes.
