Let me introduce myself, my name is Stevie “ Puppet” Lee and I’m a 4’4 Achondroplasia Dwarf living in the Chicago- land area with my wife, 15 year old son, and new born daughter.
I currently own my own entertainment company, Half Pint Brawlers, Inc. for the last eighteen years and I am also an actor who is and was involved on several film projects.
I’m the only person living with dwarfism in my family, where I always had loving, supportive parents and spouse throughout my childhood and adult life. With that support and backbone, I was constantly involved in a lot of activities as a child (sports, theater, and hobbies) and therefore with these experiences I found myself not afraid to start relationships, projects, and self employment. Even early on in life my mother would tell the story on how I would see people stare at me, and my first reaction was to walk up to them to introduce myself with a hug. I guess at the time I didn’t realize that I was physically different or maybe awkward looking toward individuals in society. In life as a young child I had to learn early on how to deal with being physically different from everyone else I was around. Of course, the teasing and name calling was part of my life early in grade school as I ventured into the world away from the protective circle of the family. Also the bullying was part of my life every time I moved to a different school or classroom; I had to learn to overcome daily ridicule and let my classmates know that I was just like them, only shorter. Once kids got over the physical dissimilarity, the concern wasn’t such a big deal and we went ahead with our friendships. Throughout these short stories in this manuscript I have several memories, experiences, and events that hopefully give a little insight into my existence living as a dwarf “outside the circle”.

Getting ready in 2013 with the “Living Outside the Circle” program:
Living Outside the Circle comes from the idea of living with Achondroplasia Dwarfism, where the everyday experiences come with internal and external challenges. The individual is always in the spotlight of life on a daily basis, because of his or her physical appearances, which makes the person outside the circle of society looking in. Within the program, book, and public motivational speaking events, the creator Stevie talks about the different events in his life, where he had to improvise his lifestyle to succeed with the everyday behaviors from others in the outside world. Steve discusses on childhood bullying, everyday ignorance, feeling of belongings, and overcoming daily challenges with heart filling and fun stories in his 43 years of life. Living Outside the Circle also challenges it’s audience to relate and take a look at their own lifestyle and experiences through the emotional stories that Steve brings to the pages of his biography and public appearances. ENJOY!
