Journal. He edited his college newspaper while earning a bachelor’s degree in media studies from the University of Southern Maine. He later earned a master’s degree in public affairs from Brown University’s Taubman Center for Public Policy. A New Hampshire native and avid New England sports fan, Steve refuses to believe the Patriots’ era of dominance is coming to an end.
