Stephen is an avid tennis player in Orange County, California. The locals nickname him “TopspinMonstar” because of his heavy topspin game. Stephen practices and trains with the Irvine Tennis Association, an organization home to some of Southern California’s finest locals. Heavily influenced by tennis culture throughout his life, Stephen has a passion for playing, testing, and reviewing “hardgood” tennis products. This mainly includes strings, rackets, and performance tennis shoes. Stephen films regularly for his Youtube channel dedicated to product reviews, tutorials, and strength/conditioning. He hopes that this channel brings about entertainment, inspiration, and health/fitness knowledge to his viewers.
