November 1st marks my first anniversary as a Mask of Destiny staff member. To commemorate the event, I interviewed myself.

Q: What do you do when you are not working on a story for Mask of Destiny?

A: I am always working on a story for Mask of Destiny. On rare occasions, I sleep.

Q: How did you first become interested in BIONICLE??

A: It was the MATA NUI ONLINE GAME. I first stumbled across it around April 1, 2001. I have been a fool for it ever since.

Q: What are some of your favorite BIONICLE characters and sets?

A: KOPAKA is just too cool! Have you seen the things he can do with that sword!? All of the residents of Ko-Wahi (NUJU, MATORO, and KOPEKE) are wonderful, but the BIONICLE character I most closely identify with is TAMARU.

MUAKA and KANE-RA were perhaps the most fun to build and the MANAS are a blast to play with, but I have to give a nod to the prototype SAND TARAKAVA as my favorite personal set for its uniqueness.

Q: How did you join the staff of Mask of Destiny?

A: Purple Dave put out a plea for help, and since I was already spending far too much time on all things BIONICLE, I sent him my credentials. I think he put me on staff so I would stop bothering him with complicated mathematical analyses.

Q: What is your favorite thing about being a staff member of Mask of Destiny?

A: The interviews: Ghost, Templar, Greg Farshtey, Carlos D'Anda, and Randy Elliot, and Dimensioneer. Everyone involved with BIONICLE is very gracious and friendly.

Q: What is your least favorite?

A: Klez. Some MoD readers still harbor this virus on their computers and send it to me daily. Do everyone you ever communicated with a big favor and check your computer for Klez.

Q: What advice do you have for someone who might want to be a staff member of MoD someday?

A: Live near a LEGOLAND?. Better yet, live in LEGOLAND; preferably one in Europe. You will need a decent digital camera. A scanner would be nice. Good grammar and spelling are a must: e.g. "no one" instead of "noone" and "anyway" instead of "anyways". You might want to put a color in front of your name. You should live, eat, and breathe BIONICLE. Most important of all, you should not require more than one hour of sleep per month.

Q: Anything you would like to add?

A: Yes. The readers of Mask of Destiny are great! They see and hear things we never could, and then they send them in to so we can share them with everyone else. They truly are the best part of Mask of Destiny!

I can't wait to see what the next twelve months have in store for us all!
