About My Life
Thanks for viewing my website, I really appreciate you have taken the time out to either check out my portfolio or my blog.
My name is Steven Rowe and here is a brief overview of my life:
- Born near Heathrow Airport, London, United Kingdom
- Growing up I lived mostly in Goodmayes, Essex and Upminster, Essex with my parents and one brother.
- I missed a lot of my education due to health issues when I was a teenager. I was born in an era when only rich people went to University. However, I don’t think I’ve done too badly with my career.
- Career Highlight 1: Worked in the British diplomatic server Press Office where I met heads of state such as Robert Mugabe and Ronald Reagan
- Career Highlight 2: Worked in a quango government department called Government Hospitality organizing events such as dinners and lunches between foreign heads of state and British ministers. Many of those functions were in the presence of the British Royal Family. I have met many celebrities.
- Career Highlight 3: Worked at the now-defunct Central Office of Information, the governments in-house PR agency. I worked in the TV, Radio and Exhibitions departments. It was fun to work with celebrities putting together public service commercials.
- Career Highlight 4: Worked for the French boyband 2Be3 for which I was headhunted by their manager Louis Pardo. Work for the band was based in Paris, France.
- I met my adorable American husband Don and we’ve now lived in the London, Washington DC, Denver, and Vancouver Canada. This has further expanded my career as I have experience in all these cultures.
- In the past 10 years, my focus has been in health care and running my own business that assists local businesses and medical/science/health journals.
Due to my health issues, I had little expectations for my life when I was younger, especially when a surgeon told me I would most likely be dead by the time I’m 52. However, meeting Don, travelling the world, lucky enough to have been accepted for many interesting jobs, I am feel extroidinarly lucky to experience so much.
