The Family Behind the Dream

Steve Wood, at his core, is an inventor; a man whose passion for creation extends far beyond the tangible patents he holds, both nationally and internationally. Life for Steve has always been a grand expedition marked by travel, fly-fishing and cherished family moments.

Steve’s family's roots are planted deep within American soil, hailing from a line of pioneers, including early settlers of Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado, and trailblazers who built the first log cabin in Jacksboro in the 1800s.

His heritage is enriched by stories of strength and bravery – from a great-grandmother orphaned on the Trail of Tears to a great-great-grandfather awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Steve's grandfather, a 'doughboy' in World War I, and tales of cattle drives from Texas to Colorado by his forebearer William Martin Wood, stitch together the family narrative of courage and endurance.
