  • Steve Sylvester ’09 Steve Sylvester might be a self-proclaimed “nerd” but to most who know him, including the Department of Defense (DoD), that’s a good thing.

    Sylvester, a lifelong gamer who enjoys making costumes of video game characters to wear at conventions, has a natural affinity for software development, animation, and computer programming—the latter catching the attention of Sycamore.US, Inc.—a federal contractor for the United States government specializing in network security and satellite technology.
