I have the heart of a warrior, and the soul of a poet.

I have given up aspirations of doing something in the technical field as a career, and now code just for fun, like I did when I was a kid.

For a career, I taught young folk Aikido.
It was a fulfilling and challenging occupation, and it was nice to find a job that fit "just right".

But once moving from California to Wyoming, I haven't been doing much of anything.

A good way to get to know me is to read my livejournal.
I don't post everyday, but there is plenty there.

I am a father.

I value honor an honesty.

I'll try anything twice.

My various names:
I am known or have written under the following names:

  • L. Christopher Bird (legal name)

  • Christopher Michael Bird Cain (no longer used)

  • Tadhg Christopher Bird (Current nom de plume, future legal name What I've been going by in 'real life' for over 5 years now)

  • Johnny Fusion =11811= (Cyberpunky pseudonym)

  • KeltBoi (various net stuff)

  • ZenMondo (more various net stuff)

  • Anakin Starkiller (Star Wars Fandom Stuff)

That's about all the 'nyms I'm willing to admit to right now.
