I had the great pleasure of interviewing Stephen yesterday for a story I am writing on Occupy Wall Street’s second anniversary this coming Tuesday.
Stephen is 52 and has been living in the Detroit area most of his life. He is a freelance computer programmer and systems integrator who has been active with Occupy Detroit since its first meeting on October 10, 2011.
Stephen lost his job in 2004 and his house in 2006. His was “a story of riches to rags,” he told me with a smile.
