Steve Crayne’s first love affair began with movies, when his mom let him play hooky from school to watch The Lost Horizon when he was six years old. This passion led him to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from SUNY at Oswego.

He moved to Los Angeles after college and negotiated a deal for the re-release of In Search of Paradise: The Nordhoff and Hall Story and wrote a foreword for the book and a theatrical outline for producer Bernard Schwartz, known for Coal Miner's Daughter.

When the deal fell through, Steve’s passion led him to a long, successful career with a then start-up company, Blockbuster Entertainment.

Said, Rich Ungaro, Executive VP, Domestic Retail for Blockbuster Entertainment, “Steve Crayne played a major role in our success of building a national retail brand because of his tenacity and dedication to getting the job done. He brings an unbridled passion for getting things done and is terrific influence on his co-workers with his positive "we can get this done" attitude. Steve is a pleasure to work with and I deeply appreciate his effort and contribution to our success."

Steve’s love affair with Wix began in 2018, when to his chagrin, he discovered, after an accomplished career, that he was too old or expensive for the corporate world. He had done a few Wix sites for non-profits and wanting to feed his family, he applied for the Wix partner program.

Flash forward to 2022, when Starting Gate Marketing was named a top 100 Wix agency partner.
