Meet Steve Surdez
Baltimore, MD – Washington, DC Area
Steve brings nearly twenty years of experience in marketing and content creation to our team, the last five of which have focused exclusively on the region’s life sciences market. As Senior Content Specialist, he is responsible for creating compelling content across a wide range of mediums. Prior to joining WorkForce Genetics, Steve operated his own content company and was a contract writer for BioBuzz for five years. In his career, he has worked within internal communications teams and has deep experience on the agency side as a project manager and content creator. Steve loves crafting informative content and working with partners, companies, and individuals to share their unique stories and showcase their work. He lives in Frederick, Maryland with his wife, two sons, and the family dog. In his free time he enjoys hanging out with his family, watching his sons play baseball, routing for the NY Mets, and fishing.
What do you love about your work?
I enjoy the whole process from research and planning to the interviews, writing and editing. The people I meet and talk to are as remarkable as the work they’re doing every day to help patients and their families. Telling their stories is a privilege and provides me with a unique window into why the BioHealth Capital Region is an amazing place to live and work. It’s fun to celebrate the region’s successes by telling the always fascinating stories of the companies and people that make it great.
Describe how the work you do supports our mission
Great storytelling connects people. And that’s what WorkForce Genetics and BioBuzz are all about—bringing people from all corners of our life sciences community together to network, learn and grow. Whether that’s showcasing biotech career opportunities to recent graduates or celebrating the latest BioHealth Capital Region company’s IPO, sharing challenges, applauding accomplishments, and tapping into our biohub’s collective experiences is what I support in my role as our Senior Content Specialist.
