About CM

One of BIONICLE's Biggest Fans Ever since CM first saw the Vakama, Tahu "Fire Pack", CM has loved BIONICLE. He loved the sets, storyline, twists, turns, and the beautiful landscapes of the Biological Chronicle (BIONICLE for short) Universe. Now, 6 years later, and at the age of 16, he is leaving BS01, but will still be a dedicated BIONICLE fan.

The Creator of BIONICLEsector01

Crystal Matrix, or Bryan, is the creator of the ever-famous BIONICLEsector01 website, the ultimate source for BIONICLE information. BIONICLEsector01 was created as a simple site by Crystal Matrix in the year 2002, then known as Exo-Makuta. It was a very simple site with nothing more on the Toa than their most basic descriptions. Simply said, it sucked.

Then Exo-Makuta changed his name to Crystal Matrix and created a newer version of BS01, with a cool white and light blue interface online, news and its own domain name. It was a very popular site. However, Crystal Matrix soon became really busy with the thing known as Life and it fell into a period of few updates... and suckiness.

By now we were in 2004, so Crystal Matrix made an even newer version using his new Microsoft Frontpage with not just reference, but a cooler look, games and software about BIONICLE. Yet that darn Life struck again and the site fell into the deep abyss and no-update-ness. And yes, it sucked.

Then CM came to the realization that Microsoft Frontpage (and Microsoft in general) was inferior to hand-coding, so he, with the help of his friend Gornakle, designed a new site that used database access and had staff (Swert, Twin Matrix, Pekel and Redeemed Sol). Unlike previous reincarnations, this version was skinnable and it was partnered with BZPower, one of the best BIONICLE fan sites on the web. Once it launched on the 24th of July in the year 2005, BIONICLE fan-dom would forever have a reference site that did not suck.

BZPower Support Team Member

Crystal Matrix was made a BZP Support Team Member on July 22, 2004, and started to contribute a lot to the New Member Q&A forum. He was 14 years old when he was made a member, living in the U.S. state of California, with his brother, his sister and his two parents. At the age of 11, he became a BIONICLE fanatic, having been with LEGO System since he was 8. He joined BZCommunity when he was 12, and has seen BZ go through many stages, events, and all of its anniversaries.

He is a member of the High School IT program, which is a high level computer class. He is learning lots of web code and hopes to be a web page designer when he grows up. He has already designed BIONICLEsector01, a large contribution to BIONICLE reference.

He loves to play basketball, swim, golf, run, and surf the net in his spare time. He also likes to build with both System and BIONICLE when he's bored.

Future Plans

After the creation of the BS01 Wiki, Crystal Matrix was very helpful to editors and friends alike. He logged on to the Wiki and BZPower almost every day to answer people's questions and comments. But slowly Crystal Matrix become more involved with other activities and he just couldn't keep up. Realizing that leaving BS01 would ultimately give him the free time he wanted, he indeed left his creations to be run by Swert and Pekel. Now he is leaving to do more of the things that BS01 prevented him from fully exploring. Dancing, piano, voice lessons, high school, homework, web design, and church are just some of the main reasons why he is leaving. CM hopes to do either web design, or something art/music releated when he grows up. He has truly given us so much and we all will miss him dearly.
