Where to begin...
My name's Stephen Kirkwood, but most people call me Steve-O. I have been diagnosed with a mild form of autism called "Asperger's Syndrome" and possess a superior IQ of 129.
My passion is working on computers. When using computers, I do all sorts of things including composing music, creating artwork, experimenting with waveforms, manipulating/modifying photos, playing video games (who doesn't?) and even surfing the Internet. Someday, I hope to acquire a career in the field of robotics.
I used to have serious problems with my anger. I would often lose control of my temper and spiral into a violent rage. Over time, however, I've gotten a lot of help and now have it completely under control. I'm usually a nice guy once you get to know me. Although, it's ill advised to get on my bad side.
One other particular hobby of mine is producing artwork. Sure, my art isn't as great as I'd like it to be, but I'm still proud of my works. The majority of my artwork is in the genre of cartooning and comic design; sometimes I create something totally different, such as a fake movie poster of something that (obviously) wouldn't exist.
As for my lifelong dream, it's to someday visit Paradise Island. I know it sounds strange, but there's actually good reason behind it. I see all this war and murder and death on TV, in the newspaper, and everywhere else I look. I know that not ALL of this world is in total chaos; there are still places that have peace. I want to go to Paradise Island so that I can see, feel, and experience true relaxation for myself. A chance to get away from the world, if you will.
Speaking of which, traveling the world is something I would love to do. Two places in particular I'd like to visit would have to be Tokyo, Japan and Moscow, Russia. The reasons why is because Tokyo is where my favorite video game creator Shigeru Miyamoto lives, not to mention that most E3 conventions occur there. That, and I find Japanese culture to be very intriguing. As for Russia, my favorite architectural structure (St. Basil's Cathedral) is located in Moscow in Red Square directly across from the Tower of Kremlin. I would love to have a tour of the cathedral! Russian culture has also interested me, and as a mere hobby, I've taken up self-teaching the language.
Well, hope this wasn't TOO long for you to read. If you read the entire thing, then I say thanks to you! Clearly you've become interested in my profile. If there's anything else you'd like to know about me, or if you simply wish to get to know me better, feel free to email me at any time. See ya!
