About Steve, Peggi & Family:

Our Family

Your typical Carrollton Family:  Married, two-children, two dogs and two cats, focused on Faith Family and Community.  A typical family of Volunteers with conservative values!

My wife and I chose to make Carrollton our home after marrying in Carrollton in 1992.   We 

have had two residences in Carrollton and the home we have been at the current address on Canon Gate Circle since 1995. We have two wonderful children, Michael and Sarah, both brought home to our current address and raised in this wonderful city   We have taken advantage of virtually all the City amenities as we raised our children (Rec Ce

nters, T-Ball/Baseball, Trails, Parks, et…) and placed them in CFB ISD schools to take full advantage of the wonderful schools and diverse population as they have grown into mature, good-standing adults.   Michael is currently a sophomore student at Texas Tech where he was admitted into the Rawls Business Leaders program, receiving a generous scholarship.  Sarah is a Senior at Newman Smith High School and will be attending one of the state universities in the fall.  

Our entire family has been involved in the community as upstanding residents, volunteers and servants.   As a family we support our Neighbors, Schools, First Responders, City and St Catherine of Siena Catholic Church where we were married, children baptized.


Professional Life:

A Finance guy, I started my Career at Texas Instruments (TI) after earning my Bachelor of Science in Finance from the Florida State University.   I earned my Masters of Business Administration (MBA) at Amber University while working full-time.  

While at TI, I helped with the Malcolm Baldridge Quality Award for Excellence application, which we won and helped launch the Software Business of TI by selling what we used to other large companies.  As a team, we divested
our EDI business, went public via an IPO and grew from 25 employees to over 1,000.   I have helped grow large and small companies, been involved in several M&A transactions and today work with small cap companies to build traction, attract investment and blossom.   Having served both Large Public and Small Private companies on Boards of Directors and in positions of Leadership, I bring the zest and zeal to dig into the numbers to help bring incremental ROI value.

Community Involvement:

I became active in my community via my Neighborhood in the Highlands (HNA) shortly after moving in as Block Captains and Crimewatch volunteers (1996/7).   I was recruited as Treasurer of the HNA  in 1999 and served two terms of 2 years, completing in 2003.   I was then recruited as President and served as such from 2009-2013, coordinating neighborhood activities, Crime Watch and Beautification efforts in addition to lobbying the City for resource attention to our Creeks, Birds and Grants.   During my service, we deployed two matching Grants (Canon Gate Wall Extension, Wrought Iron Fence along Rosemeade), added sign toppers, joined the North Dallas Neighborhood Alliance for Crime Watch with neighboring Dallas communities and deployed a security system as deterrence for our 8 Entry/Egress points with both a broad Infrared camera and License Plate Readers.   These cameras have served useful for Carrollton Police Investigators in solving criminal activities in the Neigborhood.  

In addition to serving my Neighborhood's Association, I have served on several School and School District Committees and City Boards and Commissions, including:  

  • Board of Adjustments (cka Property Standards Board)
  • Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ)
  • Historic Preservation Advisory Commission (HPAC)
  • Medical City Dallas Children's Hospital Advisory Board
  • CFBISD First Lego League Advisory Board
  • CFBISD International Business Academy Parent Advisory Board
  • PTA's & Booster Clubs
  • Etc...

It is through this neighborhood experience that I took the Step to City Council in 2014.   On Council I have served the following Boards & Commissions:

  • Deputy Mayor Pro-Tem – May ’14-'17
  • Redevelopment Committee
  • Transit Oriented Development Committee
  • Museum Board
  • Landfill Commission
  • Carrollton Wind Symphony
  • Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce Ex-Officio Board member
  • Environmental Distinction Award Committee, Chairman
  • MLK Day Committee & Grand Marshall in 2017
  • CFB-ISD Ambassador
  • LISD Facilities Advisory Committee 2016-2017


Additionally, I have been actively engaged in virtually all City Events, Community Gatherings, First Responder and Police programs – Coffee with a Cop; #InItTogether; #BackTheBlue.

We attend virtually ALL city events and activities to show support and ENGAGE with our citizens.
