Born in 1963, earned a BS with double majors Physics and Philosophy, double minors in Math and Psychology, MS in Physics with a minor in Education, 26 years in computer tech support in the public school system up through college level specializing in Macs. I joined the Baha’i Faith in 1986, served on assemblies, living in North Carolina since 1987, married with an adopted daughter, and independent Baha’i scholarhip since the 1990s (see  "Computers in the Bahá'í Community through Ridván 1992” by Bryn Deamer and Steven Kolins published in Bahá'í World, Vol. 20, 1992, (see http://bahai-library.com/deamer_kolins_computers ) I’ve continued my efforts in scholarship on the Baha’i Faith such as “A North Carolina Bahá’í history 1850 - 2021" by Steven Kolins” in Robert Stockman, ed, Symposium: The beginnings of the Bahá'í Faith in Kansas, Missouri, and North Carolina, Wilmette Institute, May 16, 2021, (see https://wilmetteinstitute.org/symposium-the-beginnings-of-the-bahai-faith-in-kansas-missouri-and-north-carolina/ ). I’ve been working at developing newspaper collections for Baha’i history, and contributing to Bahaipedia and Wikipedia since 2005. I’ve assisted other Baha’i scholars especially with newspaper resources. I also contributed to "Wikipedia, Bahaipedia and clipping newspapers” in Graham Hassall, ed, The Reference Desk: projects that support Bahá’í Scholarship in the digital age, 2022, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaA1HaUn7qY&list=PLIuL3_QEzL2axkrv6d8AUMX_pQs6z4mrR&index=3
