In between a posting overseas as a diplomatic attaché and business ventures, he worked as a bureaucrat in education and Aboriginal Affairs. A social commentator on race relations, Stephen received a Deadly Award for his Outstanding Contribution to Literature in 2005 and the following year he was named NAIDOC Aboriginal Person of the Year.
