Stephen (Steve) Berra, is one of the world's best professional skateboarders, and he is also a very talented actor. Steve is now 26 years old. He was born on May 10, 1973 in the city of St. Louis, Missouri.
At a young age, Berra moved out of Missouri, and relocated to Omaha, Nebraska. When he was about 13, he picked up the sport of skateboarding. Steve stuck with it and as the years went by, he eventually got better and better. He travelled around the country, going to different contests and showing off all of his skills. When Berra was only 18, it was decided between him and Blockhead Skateboards, that he had what it took to start skateboarding professionally. They started paying him to skateboard, and it was his life.
Steve had done other things. He was a busboy, warehouse worker, and even worked as an editorial assistant at TransWorld magazine. However, nothing could ever compare to being a professional skateboarder. Berra has now been pro for 8 years. Still going strong. He's had many sponsors to support his skating career.
Steve has also completed multiple skateboarding sessions for videos over the years. If you would like to see some clips from Steve's more recent videos, visit the "In Action" section of the page.
Aside from skateboarding, another interest that Berra has... is acting and film. He has been acting for a fairly long time too. Steve has landed some small movie roles, and he has been seen in a few commercials for companies such as Nintendo, Airwalk, and Sunny Delight. He has been on T.V. shows like Nash Bridges, (playing Cheech Marin's son "J.J Dominguez") and 413 Hope St., (playing "Quentin Jefferson", a young man trying to deal with the HIV virus) You may have also seen him in the R.E.M video , Strange Currencies. Coming up in April 1999, you will be able to catch Steve in a feature film called "Anywhere But Here", with Susan Sarandon.
Berra is also into writing. He has been doing up numerous scripts on his own, and is currently creating one film which is called "Sorry Somehow" as a result. Some of the filming is already in progress. Steve would also like to write his own book some time in the future. A book on teenagers, because he believes that young people are hugely underestimated these days.
Stephen Berra has accomplished a lot in his 26 years, and he's still going. It's hard to say what's next in his life.
