Being a long-time book lover served Stephen well as he attended Brigham Young University. He served an LDS church mission in Seoul, Korea where he gained a deep love for the Korean people and Kimchi (a fermented vegetable dish.) Stephen tried out for Divine Comedy, when returning to BYU and it was there that he and his lovely wife, Whitney Call, first met. They were married two years later despite a Valentine’s Day break up or two. Stephen graduated from BYU with a bachelor’s degree in international relations and still works and laughs with Whitney everyday on Studio C.
