Prior to law school, Stefan was a Director in the biosciences industry - specifically in molecular separations for the bio-pharmaceutical sector. There he was exposed to revolutionary scientific concepts and engineering. The experiences developed a habit of honest objectiveness with devout reliance on facts, evidence, logic, and reason.


Stefan has also worked in the wine industry, at first in Budapest (he is fluent in Hungarian) developing Hungarian exports to the United States, then later in Los Angeles expanding the newfound internet wine market.

FAMILY

Stefan met his wife, Sunny, many years ago in a dog park. Both shared a passion for helping others and a dedication to advancing the status quo, an instant connection in lifestyle objectives. Sunny works downtown in Financial Planning & Asset Management, having previously worked in the mental health field for major non-profits. Each shares a deep love for history, nature, sports, law, and the Aloha life. They both serve on the board of directors for Best Buddies Hawaii. They live modestly with their two dogs, Maui and Lily, in Kaka'ako.

FAMILY HISTORY

Stefan's mother was a Hungarian refugee who escaped across the USSR's Iron Curtain mine fields to the freedom of US occupied Austria. Her father, Stefan's grandfather, was a freedom fighter wanted dead by the Communists because he was helping people escape across the border. They later immigrated to the United States, settling in Long Island, New York.  Stefan's mother met his father in New Jersey where he had dabbled in professional soccer with Pele. After Stefan's father became a Chemical Engineer, they moved to Boston to begin a career in the molecular sciences. From an early age, Stefan’s father began teaching him advanced scientific material; everything from hollow fiber polymer separations to the basic reason why ice floats.  Stefan’s mother is a profound intellectual, incredibly well read, and consistently a compass to the right direction. Stefan, along with his younger sister, were raised with the values of family, education, responsibility, integrity, and honor.

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”

"The quickest way to get nowhere, is to stand still.  Have a plan, always have a plan, it can change, and welcome that, but always have a plan that your activity is implementing. It may not be where you want to go, but I guarantee you'll get closer to it than doing nothing. It’s tough, and it's a relentless mindset, but at the end of the day it staves off living in one’s comfort zone, which is the closest thing to death in life"
