Hello and welcome to my About Page where you will learn all about me!
Who the Elf?
I’ve had my share of experiences on Second Life and have quite a work history. Some things I’ve been more serious about while others were brief ideas that passed in the night. I have an rather extensive SL history that while the whole story of it is no longer worth telling, the experience and lessons learned from those days lives on through my current list of Second Life activities.
I’m Just Human
In addition to the work I do on Second Life to obtain an income, I’m a freelance artist specializing in logos & brandings, social networking branding and full scale site design for static HTML or WordPress. Yes, it’s kind of awesome.
Most of my interests involve the internet because well, that’s who I am. I’m a geek and I show my badge proudly. Graphic art is one of my biggest interests. It’s not just a job to me… because I actually enjoy doing it. Here’s some other stuff I enjoy:

Account Manager / Account Executive:
I’ve been a member of the Lionheart Estate staff team since September 2010. Like all members of staff, I started out as an Account Executive – a member of staff who strictly handles Pre-Sales questions and lands sales. Within a few months, I was promoted to Account Manager and granted the ability to handle land owner support calls – providing customer service to our current residents.
Chamber of Commerce Chairwoman:
After losing the August 2010 election for the role of Chamber of Commerce (CoC) Chairwoman, I accepted a position as Lionheart Staff. I’d previously turned down the position in fear that the two were a conflict of interest. The elected official took their leave a month or so later and I was elected by the majority vote to simply take their place rather than hold a new election. In October 2010, I accepted the position.
The purpose of the CoC is to give Lionheart Estate merchants a space in which they can discuss business – the ins, the outs, what’s trendy, what works, what doesn’t. It gives us an opportunity as business owners to connect with one another, collaborate and play off each other’s strengths. While the CoC is estate-owned, it is a completely resident-organized group headed by its Chairman.
In June 2011, I passed the role on to elected Chairman Fabiano Ferina.
Senior Mentor / Tao of Lionheart:
In May 2010, the position as Senior Mentor was passed to me. While it is an official role and title, I didn’t consider myself as being any more important or in charge of Lionheart Estate’s Mentor Service.
Tao of Lionheart followers are not hired staff, but instead volunteering individuals that dedicate a part of their time to uphold the practices which our very service is founded upon. More than mere mentors or teachers, this group of individuals has proceeded forth in search of ways to show good example to newcomers as well as longstanding residents.
In July 2011, I passed the role on to Zain Larnia.
More commonly known as Jolly Farm, my business took the breedable pet market by storm and introduced some of the most commonly used breedables associated products on the grid today. The brand Jolly Farm became definition for high quality products for Ozimals™ Bunnies.
June 2010 I raised the bar again, bringing to the community the largest and most comprehensive third party
Ozimals™ Bunnies website in existence, Jolly Farm Online. It became the go-to website for all information related to the breedable pet in addition to the best source for up to date and accurate community information.
I hung up my bunny shoes in late February, just a couple of weeks shy of Jolly Farm’s first birthday. I lost the passion and delight I once found in my bunnies, but it’s a journey not soon forgotten. I took a breather from the hectic life of being a sole business owner and established Kitty Cattery with my good friend Alia Whitfield. It was a big step for me personally – using all that I’d learned running Jolly Farm.
We burnt ourselves out on Kitty Cattery rather quickly. So much creativity and energy went into the business and we found ourselves tired of making stuff just for KittyCatS and eager to take on new projects. Except… we never found a direction.
In June 2011, I found inspiration once again and brought back Jolly Farm – this time as a breedables accessories store that would cater to all virtual pets!
