After graduating from NAIT with Construction Engineering Technology, Steen gained experience working for three years with a commercial general contractor in Edmonton specializing in the multi-family division. During this time he received his C.E.T. designation through the ASET program. With all the experience he gained developing condos, townhomes and hotels, he wanted to take that knowledge into the home building industry. He joined Poetry Homes alongside his mom and with his knowledge has become a integral part of the home building process.
