BIOGRAPHY:
My art primarily explores the freedom online communities, specifically Second Life, provide, allowing you to set aside your cultural roles and explore other roles. Real life cultural roles are necessary for a functioning society, but they are often extremely confining, almost forcing people into pigeonholes of expected behavior. Second Life gives us all the opportunity to slip out of our pigeon holes and be almost anything we can imagine.

My photography is done entirely in-world using SL Windlight, effects, settings, and filters.

Second Life is my medium.
