Design Manager, Co-Owner
Stephen has grown up in the park and playground industry and has been helping Noah’s customers with their playground designs and layouts, specific use-zone measurement issues and detailed equipment questions since day one! A natural engineer and problem solver, Stephen not only brings excellent design skills to the table, designing all our custom playgrounds, he is proficient at solving installation related issues, having personally built hundreds of playgrounds over the past 15+ years. When other installers call, or a DIY customer has an install issue, he is our go-to person! He can assess any on-the-ground situation and help you work out installation issues.
Stephen has spent all of his professional life at Noah’s Park & Playgrounds, since he was 15 year's old! He has worked on projects which involved designing and installing playgrounds all over Oklahoma and Texas, and specific projects in surrounding states. Stephen works with our local installation crews, helping them with onsite equipment layout and overall installation oversight. He brings a lot of skills, but those of us who work with him every day would tell you he’s a big kid at heart and always bring a playful heart to all of his playground designs.
Born and raised in, what he calls, the ‘Promised Land’ Stephen wonders why anybody would ever willingly choose to leave Edmond, OK. He’s also a BIG OKC Thunder fan and a huge fan for OSU (anything). He married a former OSU Pom Squad member, so it makes sense!
What he thinks is the best thing about being a part of the Noah’s team:
“The best part about being a part of the Noah’s team is to see our playground designs, both large and small, be played on by hundreds of kids.”
Ask him about:
The design process that goes into a playground; and exactly what helps create the best possible solution. Stephen also has a running knowledge of equipment offerings across the entire industry from his 15 years of experience in the field. While he would rather talk OKC Thunder, he will bend your ear quite a bit when it comes to anything about playground designs.
