About the concepts behind his TikToks, Steve said, “Most of the time, I just get before the camera and start talking. Some things you have to set the stage, but most are just off the cuff.”

Steve doesn’t have any children or grandchildren of his own, but he feels so much love through the community that he has built on TikTok. He said, “I don’t have kids or grandkids. And the young people that watch me tell me in the comments that they want me to be their grandpa or that I remind them of their grandpa or they call me their “internet grandpa” and that makes me feel good.”

Steve thanks his followers on a regular basis and keeps telling them that their positive comments and love make him feel less alone.
