Born in 1970 in Los Angeles, Steve P. Breen grew up in neighboring Orange County as the eldest of seven children. He graduated Huntington Beach High School in 1988 and attended the University of California at Riverside where he earned a B.A. in political science. It was at U.C.R. that Steve started drawing editorial cartoons for his school paper, The Highlander. In 1991, Steve won the Scripps Howard Charles M.
