Steven Marshall is from Montreal. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from Concordia University in 1993. Three weeks after graduation, he moved to Vancouver.

Until 2001, he had a business administration career and was creating spreadsheets and databases to increase productivity for his colleagues and himself.

In 2001, he started Stemar Consulting as a self-employed I.T. consultant and software developer. Initially specializing in spreadsheets with macros for finance and accounting clients, he learned to code with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite.

He created standards-compliant websites and he researched and developed database-driven web applications using MVC frameworks following high-level programming guidelines.

From 2008 until 2013, he was employed as a full-time software engineer with two software firms and self-employed as an I.T. consultant.

He started Nevvix Technology Inc. in July 2013. He worked on projects at Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, Best Buy Canada and the University of British Columbia.

With an uncommon, broad understanding of both I.T. and business, his specialty is to create software solutions that meet business goals and reduce maintenance costs over time.
