About the Host

Steve Norris

CEO of Adventure and Shenanigans

Steve Norris grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois, where his deep curiosity for the world set the stage for a life of passion and adventure. His love for music started at the age of 4 when in spite of being told by his older siblings’ piano teacher that he was too young to start learning to play, he was the only child that actually wanted to sit and practice. Hence, the teacher ultimately relented and started teaching Norris, who went on to play the likes of Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert throughout his childhood. In his teen years, he discovered Rock and Roll and began writing his own music. This led to an early career in the music business where he toured in America and overseas, signing a record deal with an independent label in the 90s.

Getting married and starting a family led Norris to enter the business world where he discovered he had a knack for sales, leadership and innovation. He’s Co-Founded and launched two companies from the ground up (a Tech Consulting Firm, and a Music Distribution Company) building them both to global brands. He’s a former National Board Member and past President and Chairman of TechServe Alliance, a consortium of IT Staffing and Consulting firms comprising over $4 Billion in combined revenue.

Steve’s current passion is in giving back and working on projects that are making a difference in the world. Along with his grown daughter Erin, he launched “Better Place Project with Steve Norris,” to shine a light on individuals from every corner of the globe who are doing incredible things to help make the world a better place.
