President & CEO
Steve founded Mystic Water Features out of sheer word-of-mouth demand. “My hobby kind of snowballed,” says the passionate pond builder. “Even today, as hard as these projects are, they don't really seem like work.” His biggest satisfaction? “Seeing how thrilled clients are with the final outcome.”
