Ever since his childhood, Steve has shown his artistic side. His dad made him a guitar while he was still a child, and while growing up his love for music intensified which resulted in him learning to play a real guitar. During high school, Steve changed bands several times, and following on he enrolled at DeSales University on an acting scholarship. However, he soon dropped out of University, and moved to New York in order to pursue a professional acting career.
Before his commercial success, he lent his voice to some voice-over commercials, and appeared in the TV crime series “Homicide: Life On The Street” and “Law And Order”.
His net worth really began to increase from 1995, when he earned a role in the TV show intended for kids, “Blue’s Clues”. The show was a hit from its first episode, and earned Steve a noteworthy fan base of pre-teen girls and their parents. Through the next few years, the income from the show became the main source of his net worth. Other than the very show, Steve has also been featured in a number of Blue`s Clues specials, including the “Blue`s Big Musical Movie” released in 2002. However, in 2002, Steve left the show, stating that he did not want to grow old as a children`s host and finish his career in that way.
Instead of acting, he then dived into musical waters, and in collaboration with fellow musician Steven Drozd from the rock band Flaming Lips, recorded the album “Songs For Dustmites” in 2003, which garnered positive critical reviews, adding a substantial amount to his overall net worth. Moreover tin his career as a musician, in 2009 he released another album, “Deep Sea Recovery Efforts”, his last so far.
In 2007, he had returned to acting, this time in the form of a vampire in the comedy-horror film entitled “Netherbeast Incorporated”, followed by a role as an astronaut in the film entitled “Christmas On Mars” released in 2008. His recent involvement in the acting industry is represented by his appearance in the TV series “The Professionals” (2012).
When it comes to his personal life, after he left the “Blue`s Clues”, several rumors appeared about his death in a car accident and a drug overdose, however, he appeared on the “Rosie O’Donnell Show” in order to prove wrong those rumors. Little is known about his life behind the camera, however, it is reported that Steve has been a relationship with one of the Playboy models.
