Steve is currently an advisor to the Clinton Health Access initiative,and is one of the leading experts on HIV in Indonesia who has been working on prevention and so forth here for decades. After graduating in the 60s and a 21 year stint as a US Navy doctor he began work in Indonesia. His experience and close relationship to Indonesia, from Papua to Sumatra, is reflected in his eclectic home set in extensive, rambling gardens featuring a 25 meter lap pool, plunge pools, a spa overlooking the river, garden pavilions, one of which is often used for Yoga retreats and other gatherings.
