Neil Stephen Loresto, also known as Stephen and most popular as Tep is our Chuzi Pioneer. Stephen started dancing when he was in his fourth year of high school. He grew up watching series like ABDC and he copied what other Bboy crews did. But he got committed to dancing in his second or third year of college.  He then auditioned for the FEU Dance Company and is today with Kinection. Stephen pursued dancing because of the feeling that he got, along with the excitement and the exhilaration.

He says that his creative process takes a long time because he gets discouraged pretty easily. However, he does bounce back and he is inspired by the people in the dance community. He considers that him being part of Kinection after his audition is a big deal and is bigger than any of his achievements.
