Steffon Thomas is the CEO and Founder of The Creative Extreme. Along with President Christopher Ikpoh, he guides the growth and development of the company and the creative collective that has assisted in bringing many of the characters and stories to life. He serves as head writer and creative content editor as well as web designer.
After graduating from Oberlin College in 2003, Steffon began his writing career at American Greetings. After leaving the greeting card business in 2007, he spent time working as a preschool teacher, then as an early childhood director while building his literary portfolio, establishing his freelance client base and working on a variety of passion projects, including novels, children’s books, epic poems, screenplays and more. The stories developed through those projects would provide the beginning of the collection of characters that has become #project365.
Steffon grew up in the Bronx and has established a number of secret lairs throughout the US over the years. He is married to an incredible lady and together they are raising three little characters.
As Founder & President, Christopher Ikpoh is one-half of the dynamic duo responsible for building and operating The Creative Extreme. He oversees and manages every aspect of TCE along with CEO Steffon Thomas, including all strategic business planning, creative direction, story and character creation, editing of content, as well as serving as head writer. He also is the founder of The Christopher Isaac Society (www.thechristopherisaacsociety.com), which is a personal literary brand under which he writes novels, short stories, serialized fictional stories, poetry, narratives, and journalistic musings.
Writing and entertainment has always been a love of Christopher’s. He has consumed music, film, television, animation and literary content from an early age, which inspired him to write his first comic book early in his youth. Over the early years, he continued to develop his super power by wielding the mighty pen and blasting creativity into the world, becoming the superhero The Artista! However, soon after graduating from Oberlin College in 2005, he had to venture into the professional world and The Artista had to take a backseat to the true identity of Christopher Ikpoh.
Over the years as a regular member of society, he has climbed the corporate ladder through business consulting positions and has become a Vice President at JP Morgan Chase. Yet, The Artista never died, as he continued to thrive behind the scenes with The Christopher Isaac Society. And now that the superhero has joined forces with Steffon Thomas, The Creative Extreme has unleashed Imagination Without Limitation!
When Christopher isn’t wielding his mighty pen, he enjoys his life in his home city of Chicago, IL with his super wife and his four wondrous daughters.
