Stephen’s love of swimming was apparent since an early age and soon developed into a competitive swimmer with Nation’s Capital Swim Club. His passion for engineering and swimming led him to attend Purdue University where he graduated in May 2016 with a degree in mechanical engineering and minor in economics. He was captain of the Purdue Men’s Swimming and Diving Team, a member of the student athlete advisory committee, and graduated with two university records.
During more than a decade spent in the completive swimming world, Stephen developed numerous relationships and an instinctive knowledge of aquatic sports which he will continue to build upon with Counsilman-Hunsaker. He is looking to secure a Professional Engineering license and continue to expand his aquatic design knowledge.
