Here’s Steve, All Grown Up!

Baby JackOur Crofton friends and clients reaching out to say “Hello” is one of the best things about starting this blog.  Since so many folks have asked for news and photos of my family (and, like any mom, I love to brag about my kids) let’s start with this photo of Steve, his wife Sharon and their son, Jack. 

Steve is the Founder and Chairman of the Board of BUYSAFE, a company which bonds online retail or auction purchases for consumers.  He actually created this revolutionary new insurance product, which is licensed nationwide, and BUYSAFE is now used around the world.

If you lived in the “E” section of Crofton in the 80’s, you may remember Steve as your Washington Post carrier.  However, most people in Crofton probably think of golf when they hear the name Steve Woda, since he won numerous local and national junior golf tournaments as a teenager, competing alongside Phil Michelson, among others.  He’s still got that great golf swing, as you can see from this photo taken Thanksgiving weekend, although he’s too busy to play very often.

Golf Steve croppedWe moved to Crofton when Steve was about three, and he went to Creative Gardens Nursery School, Crofton Woods Elementary, Arundel Middle School and DeMatha Catholic High School.  Growing up in Crofton, he participated in the Crofton Athletic Council starting with T-ball and 65–pound football, Scouts, and the Crofton Country Club Junior Golf Team.  When he went to Florida Southern College, that’s probably when you lost touch with him. 

After college, Steve worked in the insurance industry as a construction bond underwriter for a few years, and then got his M.B.A. at Wharton.  That’s where he met Sharon, who also has a Wharton M.B.A., and where BUYSAFE was born as a class project.

Whew!  That’s a lot of “catching-up” to cram into one little blog post!  I’ll save Tim and Susan for another time.
