A Bit About Me

A Bit About Me

This may evolve into a bit of a write-up that will eventually be posted to the About Me page, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to say hello and introduce myself to those of you out there who are tuning in! My name is Kahler (pronounced Kay-ler) Legacy. I am a caucasian 29-year-old, born and raised in Bathurst, NB and currently residing in Fredericton, NB.

I am a published author (see my work on my LinkedIn page); a semi-professional musician with previous touring & label experience, performing in several musical groups; a father to a ridiculously intelligent 2.5 year old boy; an animal lover/rescuer (4 cats, 1 dog and climbing); an Event & Catering Coordinator for the local Ramada Hotel; a first-year electrician; a graphic and web designer/developer; and so much more.

I have lived through the declassification of Pluto’s planetary status, Y2K (wasn’t that a joke), 9/11, the end of the 2-dollar bill, the end of the penny, 6 Canadian Prime Ministers & 6 American Presidents. I’ve witnessed a new Canadian territory (Nunavut) develop and be included in textbooks. I was 7 years old when Kurt Cobain was found dead. I was receiving my driver’s licence when Johnny Cash passed away, and was already a graduate of high school when Michael Jackson died.

I lived through huge technological advancements and expect to see so much more. In fact, here is a list of 36 crazy things that have happened in the past 30 years (original list pulled from this article).
