|Steve "clearly" remembers October 5th 1985: watching fireworks from the Crown Room of the Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco and deciding that one day this City was going to be his home (sorry Brad). He succeeded in achieving this goal in 1987 by joining Weitek in Sunnyvale and living in North Beach for 3 years. Finally the time came to decide whether to watch his kids grow up wearing baseball caps and chewing gum or to reduce his commute time by moving to a smaller country. He sat out the '90s recession with NatSemi in Munich for 4 more years before finally closing the circle back to the UK. Steve then ran DataBeam Europe for 3 years before joining Ridgeway Systems as VP Marketing in mid-98.
