His formal education began at North Country Community College in Saranac Lake, NY where he graduated with an Associate of Science degree in Wilderness Recreation Leadership.

He soon developed a strong passion for web design and computer graphics. In 2000, he earned his Certified Internet Webmaster and I-Net Plus certifications from New Horizons Computer Training Center.

Steve started Suloff Designs in 2000 as a part-time venture that began with the creation of an on-line gallery for artist, Kip Herring a.k.a. Arthur Airin.  In 2001, he also began teaching computer skills as a Photoshop Instructor at New Horizons.
