Steve Parker


I am happiest on a football field, court or golf course playing my favorite sport for that season.  I also love coaching youth football and other youth sports.  I did love working at EDS / TPD and traveling the world during the PC revolution.  What a great group of people; very smart, knew how to take care of customers, and would get it done under budget.  Love my time at EDS.

I married at great woman, Esther and we have two boys; Zane and Berndt.  We moved to Colorado from Texas after we married and had a great 15 years in Colorado.  We moved back to Texas in 2009 and enjoyed living in Keller, TX.  I am originally from the Fort Worth area and love the friendly atmosphere of Keller.  We do miss the mountains, camping and skiing.  I also miss the cold weather.  I love the 40 degree nights.

Since I have been back in Texas, I have focused on consulting but really becoming a writer.  I have written two youth football coaching books and working on a third.  I also have 4 novels in draft form trying to write endings for all.  The ending is always the hardest to write.
