We are also very nosy, so I sat down with Steve to get the inside scoop on our newest addition. Here’s the lowdown‚Ķ

ML: Hi Steve, mind if we start off with some basics?

SM: Not at all.

ML: What’s your favorite color?

SM: Blue.

ML: Food?

SM: Pizza. But, I guess that’s everyone’s favorite.

ML: Mmm, works for me. Favorite saying?

SM: The grass is always greener. My dad used to say, ‚“No one smiles in mud town.” Still trying to figure that one out‚Ķ

ML: My dad used to say, ‚“Keep your head on straight”, because I stress out a lot.

SM: Me too. But then you get to a point where you just have to let it go.

ML (laugh): True. Okay, favorite TV show?

SM: The Blacklist.

ML: Favorite season?

SM: Fall. I could live in a hoodie.

ML: I love hoodies. They’re so comfortable. But, if you were stranded on a desert island, you probably wouldn’t need a hoodie. So what three things would you take with you instead?

SM: Cell phone, computer, cheese steak.

ML (laugh): Cheese steak?

SM: Yeah.

ML: If you weren’t an editor, what would you be?

SM: A creative director. That’s my dream job.

ML: Interesting. So your alternate job is your dream job?

SM: Yeah.

ML: Then how did you end up editing?

SM: I used to watch a lot of Anime and when I heard they were going to make them into live action movies, I started studying film.

ML: What’s your favorite part of the editing process?

SM: When you make someone’s vision possible and they get that look on their face, like that’s exactly how I imagined it.

ML: What’s the biggest highlight of your career so far (other than working with me)?

SM: Working on a web video for Turner Broadcasting.

ML: That’s pretty cool. Is that your proudest accomplishment?

SM: No.

ML: What’s your proudest accomplishment?

SM: My son, Milo.

ML: Awh. How old is he?

SM: Seven.

ML: Name one thing you and your son have in common.

SM: Freakishly long eyelashes.

ML (laugh): My son does, too! It’s like someone glued centipedes to his eyelids. So what do you guys do for fun?

SM: Play video games.

ML: What else do you do in your spare time?

SM: Study animation and cook. I like to cook.

ML: Do you have a specialty dish that you make?

SM: I make this meat sauce over noodles. Ever hear of Pastitsio? It’s kind of like a Greek sloppy joe or a Greek lasagna.

ML: So if someone comes over your house, do they say, ‚“You better make that meat sauce”?

SM: Yes.

ML: Can you make some and bring it to work?

SM: No, Kristy is a vegetarian. She couldn’t eat it.

ML: If I check Kristy’s schedule and see what day she isn’t here, can you make some and bring it to work?

SM: Yes.

ML: Done.
