My real name is James.  The nickname I've chosen for myself is Phoenix Matthias.  In this name are six (6) values of mine which I do my best to hold to.  Within "Phoenix" there are three (3) values and within "Matthias" are the remaining three (3) values.

The Phoenix is a mythical fire bird.  It may symbolize different things to different people.  For me personally, the Phoenix symbolizes these values:
  • Love (Caring about people).
  • Perseverance.
  • A love of life in general.
Matthias is a mouse from Brian Jacques' novel "Redwall".  I took the name Matthias because the character Matthias' values very closely match my own:
  • Loyalty.
  • Fierce Warrior.
  • Defender.
I try my best to adhere to and follow these six (6) values every day.
