Couch #22 belongs to Steve. He lives in three bedroom, three bath house with a yard in Santa Clarita. Santa Clarita is a combination of Valencia, Saugus, Newhall, and Canyon Country. They all banded together to form Santa Clarita in 1985 so they could have more money for libraries and police forces and the like.
The couch was bought in 2003 from Sofa You Love. It was the first piece of furniture that Steve and his wife Mary bought together. They went to the showroom on Western one day and sat on the couch and saw how deep it was and they fell in love with it. It’s extra deep and is actually a queen-sized pull-out. It’s got styrofoam in it and down around the styrofoam. They wish that there were three cushions instead of two. The cushions are pretty heavy and they take a lot of work to make sure that they look good and don’t get deformed. The couch has travelled with them from Hollywood to this house. It’s one of the main reasons that Steve can’t move himself anymore. It’s a beast, but is worth it. He loves it for napping. It’s so comfortable.
Steve worked on Avatar for about two years. He finished that up about a year and half ago and is now a stay at home Dad during the day and a writer/director/filmmaker at night and during the day when he’s not watching his two boys.
Steve is married and his wife, Mary, works. They started dating in 1992. Yes, they have been together for 18 years. They got married in 2003. They have two children, Jack who is 4, and Ryan who is 2.
For fun, Steve plays with the kids. He also goes to the movies, to some concerts, and plays golf with some close friends. Steve likes hanging out with friends although he doesn’t have much time to go out anymore. Having two toddlers has taken care of that completely. Steve usually goes to the movies after the boys and Mary have gone to sleep. It’s nice, because in Santa Clarita, everyone is in bed by 10 o’clock, so sometimes he’s the only one in the 300 seat movie theatre at that hour. He enjoys that. That’s fun.
