I’d like to thank everyone for their well wishes for my birthday. There is so much I’d like to share with you, but that will have to happen at another time.
My birthday present this year was meeting June Foray. She's a cartoon voice over legend – I love all of her work! She was and is the voice of Rocky the flying squirrel and many other female voices on The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, and she also did many voices for Disney, Hanna-Barbera and Warner Brothers cartoons, too! When I was a kid, she was my hero. Her characters were gentle and loving voices – voices I so needed in my childhood. It’s safe to say that her work got me through many tough times as a kid.
You’re the best!
As the camera again crossed Kellie's smile I asked her to freeze right there.……. I asked Patty who that was. She said, "That's Kellie Nash, a PHD Psychologist who was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a double mastectomy and she's doing a cameo appearance."
I asked if Patty had her email, She said, "Yes" but looked at me strange because she knows I don't do that. I asked if she would send Kellie an email that your friend Steve would love to take her to coffee or lunch sometime.
As I said in my last birthday message January 2013, "There's so much more I'd like to share with you but that will have to come at another time"........
Well, I guess the time is now!.......In May of 2011, I was with Patty Jenkins in an editing room as she was putting the final editing touches on what was to be the closing segment of a Lifetime Channel breast cancer special called "Five." As the opening scenes camera panned across an outside hospital patio, a narrator's voice commented on their lives and their types of cancer. The camera came across this girl sitting there laughing….. I saw her smile.
When the scene was over I said to Patty, "Can you roll to the top of that opening scene for me?" Patty asked, "Is something wrong?" I said, "No. I want to see something."

July 1, 2009:
Steve was contacted by various media outlets for his thoughts on the untimely death of Michael Jackson. Excerpts may appear in other publications such as Life Magazine & Billboard Magazine.
What are some of your memories of working with Michael Jackson on "We Are The World"
I was originally contacted by Lionel Richie’s manager, Ken Kragen who told me that Lionel & Michael had written a song called “We Are The World” for a project they were doing together called U.S.A. For Africa. He wanted to know if I was interested in joining the choir with many other recording artists. I said, “Sure...that would be fantastic!” The next thing I knew I was at A&M studios in Hollywood in a room full of so many artists that I grew up with and admired.
