Thank you for taking time to read my submission. I have been a designer/creator/builder since joining Second Life four and a half years ago. My ability to go from concept to usable object, or in the case of Cocoa Bay; an entire community, makes my skill set a perfect fit for this position.
Designing and building the physical objects is a small part of creating a community. Working with others in a collaborative effort to reach goals is most important. Cocoa Bay started with 11 empty sims. It is now home to over 300 residents. It combines single family & apartments complete with its own government including a mayor, police force and volunteer fire department. Creating and building this community is one of my most cherished accomplishments.
I have knowledge in nearly every area of building in Second Life. My sim design skills coupled with extensive scripting experience will be an asset to Second Pride. Some notable creations include a mail system that integrates off-the-shelf rental boxes that function just like real mailboxes. Also, I have created a system called Cocoa Cash enabling our residents to transfer cash to each other. This system was created using LSL, PHP, HTML & CSS.
My objective for Second Pride would be to provide a pleasing and comfortable environment for guests while paying close attention to items that detract from the total experience, ie lag. My strong knowledge of the latest low land-impact items and tricks I’ve picked up over the years, ie script reducing techniques, will help me create a wonderful space for guests.
Thanks again for taking time to read my submission and I ask for your support in selecting me as Building Coordinator.
