Steve originally hails from Compton California and has called San Diego home for 15 years.  He immediately started working in youth sports starting as a Camp Counselor, eventually coaching as high as Junior College at his alma mater Miramar College.  Steve has always had a passion for serving his community, dating back to his elementary years. His father Steve Sr coordinated food drives, toy drives, homeless shelters, coaching youth basketball, and mentoring the youth of Compton and the surrounding areas. Following in those footsteps, Steve had the opportunity to start The Swish Foundation to serve the community of San Diego through mentorship, community outreach, and basketball. Steve works diligently to ensure that all aspects of The Swish Foundation operate in the highest regard and continues to innovate ways to serve the San Diego Community.
