In 1984 Steve founded Neo-Visuals, one of the first commercial 3D graphics software companies in the world. NVI's technology was sold to SAS Institute, and after a stint as the founding President of SAS Canada Steve took time off to pursue his other passions - his family and sailing. Animation was his calling however and in the mid 90's he was back developing software to put interactive animation on the Web. Steve passed away in 2002, but not before ensuring that Virtual Mechanics had a dedicated, committed group of people in place to carry on his vision.
