Staff Profile: Steve Sharer

The Staff Profile series is a new feature at Onward State. As the semester progresses, we will provide a window into the life of each Onward Stater. Readers: meet our writers.

Steve Sharer joined the Onward State team back in January 2009 when it was but a young lion cub of a blog. Steve writes on all sorts of Penn State topics, including the Penn State Marching Blue Band, The College of IST, and Penn State-related technology (among other things). He’s also responsible for bringing the Stately Inquisitor (a buddy from High School) to Onward State to tantalize you with the most intriguing questions you’ve ever seen.

By day, he majors in Security & Risk Analysis with minors in Information Sciences & Technology and Geography. And by night, he heads up the Security & Risk Analysis Club as the President. Steve also performs in the Penn State Marching Blue Band as a trumpet player with 310 of the most outstanding people you’ll meet at Penn State (hint: you can find him in the “P” in the “PSU” formation during pregame).

Steve hails from down South of the Mason-Dixon Line just outside Washington D.C. in Virginia. He’s glad he left for a different Commonwealth since Virginia schools ain’t got nothin’ on Penn State.

In a post-apocalyptic graduation world, Steve hopes to find a job in cyber security or as a park ranger. Whatever the case, he hopes to make it to every continent within the next couple of years.
