Steve (who changed his last name from Gross to Gordon when he got married) is an experienced mazemaker and has been creating brain-teasing puzzle mazes, mind-boggling maze games and mysterious brain-bending children's' maze books for over 15 years.
Steve designs large-scale mazes and labyrinths as well as the pencil pushing puzzle mazes! Steve also creates maze designs for apparel such as men's ties, T-shirts, and hats and maze designs for textiles like rugs and stained glass windows!
He's also an amazing lecturer on wondrously enigmatic labyrinths of ancient legends and cultures. He can expand on the history or the mystery of mazes and labyrinths and their legends, spiritual uses of the labyrinth or mazes, cultural rituals involving mazes, artifacts and ancient remnants containing the labyrinth symbol.
What made Steve decide to become a MAZEMAKER?
(Here's his story)...
Way back when I was just a wee lad, I would love to solve puzzles and build stuff out of anything I could get my hands on. Blocks, popsicle sticks, lincoln logs, leggo, sand; I once made a 52-story castle out of baseball cards!
Sometime in Junior High School, I started doodling simple mazes all over my notebooks. I was into graphic arts and worked in a neighborhood printing shop during my summers.
In High School I started carrying a clipboard with white unlined paper on it around with me, and began doodling mazes in class. The subject of what was being discussed in class was often reflected in my mazes.
By the end of high school I had a collection of about 50-60 mazes that just sat in a neat pile in a box in a desk drawer for many years. In high school I thought about publishing a maze book, but much of my early stuff was not distinctive enough for publishing. Nevertheless, I was able to get a couple published in small newsletters and school publications like the high school newspaper.
