Dr. Steele's investment success is long and storied. For instance, he bought Nike stock in 1986, researching the idea after he completed the very first LA marathon and noticed hundreds of runners wearing a then-unheard brand of shoes with a "swoosh" logo. In true Warren Buffet style, Kevin bought what he understood - a massive trend to fitness and health. He still owns those Nike shares today.

Dr. Steele earned his PhD from Columbia University following undergraduate work at Pepperdine University where he is an active alum mentoring students and leading a Board. He has competed in 4 Ironman Championship events, counts the first 10 Los Angeles marathons among his 25 marathon finishes, and placed 5th on a cycling team in the Race Across America contest.
