Hey there, my name is Steve and I am a current co-founder of Yip Yip Inc. along with Brandon Lee and Nathan Reese. 

I’ve been active in the for-profit and non-profit space for the past 20 years and own a landscape company called Wright Property Services and a cleaning company called DKA Cleaning Service. Before these ventures, I was CEO of StepUp Ministry. StepUp teaches job and life skills to low-income people in Raleigh, Greensboro, Wilmington and Durham and places over 700 adults annually in employment. From 1992-1998, I worked in the NBA as Marketing Director for 2 NBA basketball teams. From 1998-2004, I operated a Young Life camp in Oregon. From 2004-2007, I partnered with current YipYip Inc. co-founder Brandon Lee on By Design Publishing that was sold in August, 2007. I currently reside in Raleigh with my wife, Laura and my 4 children and am a member of Church on Morgan, part of Edenton Street United Methodist Church.
