Hello! Known as byrd-ga, I was a Google Answers Researcher for over four years, from 2002 until the closing of Google Answers at the end of December 2006. My real name is Chris, and I live in Texas where my roots and affections run deep. Though not as prolific as some of my colleagues, I completed my tenure as a GAR with a rating of 4.77 out of 5 stars, was selected “Researcher of the Month” in December 2003, and received many compliments from satisfied customers, to whom I remain grateful for having given me the opportunity to help them while engaging in an activity I so enjoy. I very much appreciated being a part of Google Answers and am sorry to have seen that grand experiment come to an end. It was an honor, a challenge, a tremendous learning experience, and a lot of fun researching and writing about such a wide variety of topics. Although I can and will research many subjects just for the thrill of the hunt and the satisfaction of finding the quarry, like my colleagues, I also have specialized areas of knowledge and expertise. For example, I’m a licensed Commercial Pilot, which gives me an edge in researching aviation related subjects. Other specialties include English, meteorology, military, motorcycling, nature, religion and, of course, Texas.

I’m looking forward to continuing to use my knowledge and skills in other ways in the future to help others who need and want assistance.
