When and how did you start? In 2007 when I’ve started in SL I bought 3 SIMs and started real state business, but I felt boring rent houses, lands, and then I’ve made the replica of Rio de Janeiro(place where I love) and brought some high top stores (like 10) and had a disco. Just a beautiful place to visit! After that I’ve created the first hunt for men. And started to blog fashion. I had an event for sales, called It’s On Sale SL. Then I became partner of Alianna logan and we did the feeds and group in world.
When not working in SL, what are you doing? I like to wake up early and run at Central Park every day, then I go to work, and access SL in text mode just to chatting in my lunch break.
