MCLKushiel has much to be proud of
Introducing... Myself...
Hi, my name is Alson Salmon Kaw, born Aug 18, 1990, which makes me 19 this year. I'm a Student/Creative Director located in Singapore.

Grew up in Singapore and Italy. Knowledge whore, college student, amateur music producer, technological ninja, DotA junkie, aspiring motion graphics designer, bumbling photographer, food lover, tie nut, serial reader, SALMON...

Plays the piano and electric guitar. Started a band since 2004, named Archaic Graverobbers. We play intrumental rock music. (Those without vocals

I call myself a graphic designer first and foremost, if only to impress the girls, yet I have skills and passions in many areas of computing, internet, design, usability and troubleshooting. Okay, I lied a little. I'm not passionate about troubleshooting but I seem to have a mind that's tuned to that sort of thing. The bit about impressing girls is true though. It happened once.

I have been called a simpleton and while that might sound boring, I like to make all my designs as simple, practical and logical as possible and if I manage to make them look great too then I feel I've succeeded. I'm really not a 'wow' kinda guy, but I do create stuff that works nicely and looks good. To quote Charles Mingus, "Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity".

I'm just trying to keep myself awake over here! I coughed rather than slept last night and I have 14 hours of work ahead of me! Piss off!

Welcome to gamerDNA, MCLKushiel! ^_^

That's quite a rez-oo-may. It's a distinct possibility that you may be a great deal more rounded and successful than me. You will be assimilated!

For cereal though, meeting someone who is two years younger than me, who also grew up abroad, has their goals and priorities in order, is multi-talented, is in a band, AND is a ninja salmon, well, it's rather intimidating. Gotta applaud you. I shall now friend request you in the hopes that some of that golden, shiny success will leak into my own brain one day.

I am new as well, so I like getting to know the initial enrollment class for the gamerDNA this semester.

So I hope we may pass each other in the dorms, and look forward to flashing you!

Hey! That kind of thing is wildly inappropriate, and therefore should be reserved for the senior class!

Consider yourself chastised.
