  Steven Bono: Steven Bono started working at the Gates Center on January 15, 2019, as a research service professional. Originally from Reading, Pennsylvania, where he maintains there is nothing like a Philly Cheesesteak – his favorite food, Steven grew up in a Cuban/Sicilian family with five brothers and two sisters. Eventually, the mountains, scholarships and grants all brought him to Colorado to obtain his B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Colorado, with a minor in Finance. In February 2017, Stephen went to work as a billing specialist for the Grants and Contracts Office on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus and looks forward to the prospect of working here on campus until retirement. He now works with the business manager primarily on issues related to financial activity at the affiliated Gates Biomanufacturing Facility. Loving
numbers, Stephen grew up practicing math as if it were the only subject. As a result, he enjoys reconciling and working in Excel to reach financial goals, along with networking and building relationships across the University to allow him to develop professionally and provide everyone the level of care they deserve on behalf of the Gates Center.
Having started skating at the age of one and played ice hockey since the age of two, Steven is passionate about the outdoors. He also loves fishing, having developed into a great trout fisherman since coming to the Rocky Mountains, and golfing to relax the mind and enjoy the type of course Colorado’s beautiful terrain has to offer. Running, traveling and cooking are his other favorite pursuits. Though many people like to stay active, as he does, he maintains he would pick sleep over anything. We are consequently grateful for his wonderful financial and interpersonal skills and dedication to the Gates Center during his waking hours!
