Stephanie Merrienboer – AWESOME BREED CREATIONS

AC LOGO

The Avi Choice Awards program would not take place if it were not for our Premiere Sponsors and Advertisers. With their support, we are able to present awards in an elegant and entertaining way. We are able to rent two full regions and raise our amazing Avi Choice Variety Hall and bring some of the best talent in Second Life to perform. Please take a moment to read this interview with one of our Premiere Sponsors, Stephanie Merrienboer.  Please join us in applauding this Sponsor and thanking them for bringing the SLife Awards to the Avi Choice stage.

AC: Hello! Thank you for sponsoring the Avi Choice Awards ~ SLife. When did you arrive in SL the first time and what brought you to Second Life?
SM: I started in SL in late 2006. Someone had told me about it and I wanted to check it out. Guess I liked it, I’m still here.

AC: Can you tell us a bit about how you’ve spent your Second Life? Hobbies, interests.. things you’ve learned along the way ?
SM: Mostly I’ve worked my way through SL. I started out in various clubs and worked my way through most positions, then moved onto management. All of these various job taught me many things about how SL works.

AC: Tell us all about your SL business? When was it founded? How many organizers/founders? How many SLers do you staff, etc?
SM: Awesome Breed Creations was founded on February 24, 2011 and on April 21, 2011 it became an LLC. Currently ABC has 42 staff members that include Owners-Stephanie Merrienboer & Darcul Bellic, Managers, Art Department/Development, VSRs (Customer Service), Public Relations, Auction House Department, Racing Authority and Sim Staff.

AC: Are you looking forward to Second Life’s new generation platform and will you also set up shop there? Do you have long-term goals for your business in Second Life, too?
SM: We are very excited about the future and the new platform! We plan to set up shop there and take advantage of all the new technology being offered while still maintaining our presence on Second Life as well to bring everyone an amazing product, no matter which grid they reside on

AC: Are you working/playing in other grids besides SL?
SM: Currently we only operate on the official Second Life grid.

Q: You have chosen to sponsor the Avi Choice Awards for the SLife Categories? Was there a special reason you chose SLife? Thank you for being part of our endeavor to shine a spotlight on some of the many people who make SL great, why did you choose to sponsor?
SM: ABC thinks Avi Choice is a lot of fun and gets the community involved in taking a look at the very talented and inspirational folks in Second Life and hopefully introduce them to new people or places they may not have known about before.

AC: Do you have any specific charities you support in SL? if so, who and why?
SM: Yes! ABC supports Relay For Life, Toys 4 Tots and NFMCPA-National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association. The ABC community has been so amazing and generous when it comes to these charities. We hope that our donations one day will help find a cure, help ease someones pain and put a smiles on many childrens faces at Christmas.

AC: Do you want to share a look at your life outside of SL with us? What do you or did you do for a living? Does your family support your SL aspirations?
SM: With this business being our RL business, SL and RL mix often for us. Our families do support us as well as we support each other in both RL and SL.

AC: Anything else you’d like us to know about you, a special mentor, friends or your business?
SM: ABC is honored to have been nominated as a breedable company, and very proud of our VSR’s for being nominated for customer service. None of this would be possible without our AWESOME community! We would like to Thank all of you!

Awesome Breed Creations is a long-time breedable in Second Life.  It is a pleasure to have them sponsoring the Avi Choice Awards and we applaud the hours of fun and dedication that they’ve provided to the community of Second Life.  Thank you, Darcul, Stephanie and the ABC crew!

Tao Dreamscape – SURGE Full Perm Mesh

Surge Logo 512

 

The Avi Choice Awards program would not take place if it were not for our Premiere Sponsors and Advertisers. With their support, we are able to present awards in an elegant and entertaining way. We are able to rent two full regions and raise our amazing Avi Choice Variety Hall and bring some of the best talent in Second Life to perform. Please take a moment to read this interview with one of our Premiere Sponsors, Surge.  Please join us in applauding this Sponsor and thanking them for bringing the SLife Awards to the Avi Choice stage.
AC: Hello! Thank you for sponsoring the Avi Choice Awards ~ SLife. When did you arrive in SL the first time and what brought you to Second Life?

TD: Hello! I first arrived in Second Life back in 2007. One of my myspace friends at the time was talking about SL and I thought it sounded really cool, so I decided to check it out. I created my avatar, and downloaded the viewer and entered the world for the first time. I remember flying around for a while until I ran into other avatars. “I asked them, how do you play this game?”, and they responded, just do whatever you want. I didn’t really get it at the time, and I got a little frustrated, and logged off and didn’t come back for a few months. I was inspired to return, when I started to see SL in the media, and I began to understand the appeal. I re-entered the world with a whole new perspective, and l was instantly hooked!

AC: Can you tell us a bit about how you’ve spent your Second Life? Hobbies, interests.. things you’ve learned along the way ?
TD: In the beginning I would spend my time exploring all of the fascinating worlds within SL. I thought that was really amazing that there was something for everyone. I explored sims devoted to art, music, poetry, philosophy, spirituality, I found clubs of all sorts, and of course there was all the BDSM, and kink related sims. No matter what kind of mood I was in, I was sure to find some way of occupying myself. It didn’t take long before I became interested in learning how to make things. Within a year of discovering SL, I began making and things, starting with some really terrible t-shirts and tattoo’s, and god awful Linden prim furniture. Over time I became more and more obsessed with learning how to make things, and as I did, I have become more reclusive. I rarely socialize or explore anymore, but I still love Second Life because it has not only given me an outlet to express myself in a creative way, but has enabled me to provide for my family, and do something that I love. So what Have I learned along the way? I suppose more than anything, that Second Life is a world where possibilities are endless, where our imagination is our only limitation.

AC: Tell us about your SL business? When was it founded? How many organizers/founders? How many SLers do you staff, etc?

TD: I founded Surge in October of 2012 after a falling out with my previous business partner. Surge was a fresh start for me, and an exciting new endeavor. Mesh was fairly new at the time, and I was eager to explore its potential, and push its limitations. I chose to focus on full permission mesh, because Surge consists of only me, with no partners or staff, and it allows me to focus on doing what it is that I love, which is creating mesh models, rather than spreading myself too thin, by creating limited permission items which might require animations and such.

AC: Are you looking forward to Second Life’s new generation platform and will you also set up shop there? Do you have long-term goals for your business in Second Life, too?

TD: I am absolutely looking forward to the next generation platform, and yes, I will definitely also set up shop there! I feel that it is important for Second Life’s long term survival to keep up with technology and to stay competitive in order to always entice and attract new users. I am personally excited about the coming changes. I do have long term goals for my second life business, which include continuing to provide designers with full permission mesh products to enhance their own creations, hopefully for a very long time to come. At the same time, I need to be prepared to adapt and roll with any unexpected changes that may occur.

AC: Are you working/playing in other grids besides SL?

TD: By the request of many of my customers, I have set up shop in Inworldz

AC: You have chosen to sponsor the Avi Choice Awards for the SLife Categories? Was there a special reason you chose SLife? Thank you for being part of our endeavor to shine a spotlight on some of the many people who make SL great, why did you choose to sponsor?

TD: Aside from my own business being nominated in the “Favorite Full Perm Mesh Designer (non-fashion)” category, I feel like the SLife categories are the ones that I am most familiar with and can relate to. These are largely the same designers who inspire me. Like you said, these people really do help to make SL great, and I’m am greatly honored to be mentioned in the same sentence as many of these amazing artists! I suppose that I chose to be a sponsor because I am proud to be associated with many amazingly talented creators, and sponsoring an event that honors them is my way of paying homage to all of the greats who paved the way for myself and many others!

AC: Do you have any specific charities you support in SL? if so, who and why?

TD: I have supported “Relay For Life”, and have participated in “Hunt for the Cure” a breast cancer awareness hunt with proceeds going to breast cancer research, and I participated in Mission Uganda, an event to raise funds to aid a group of precious orphaned and impoverished children in Uganda in getting vaccines against Malaria and mosquito nets. I will always donate my time, resources and money to worthy causes whenever I can. Why? Because I can, and it’s simply the right thing to do.

AC: Do you want to share a look at your life outside of SL with us? What do you or did you do for a living? Does your family support your SL aspirations?

TD: Before I was able to work full time in SL, I was an RV factory worker, and musician. I worked in several RV factories starting at age 20, and well into my upper 30’s. I grew to despise my life as a factory worker, and always sought some way of escaping. I have always been a lofty dreamer, and was always concocting new schemes in search of that one that would click, and take my life in a new direction. SL ended up being just that! In the beginning, my family did not support it at all, and thought that it was a foolish waste of time. I however saw it’s potential, and was inspired to see it through until the end. Now I have the complete support of my family, to which I am eternally grateful! I no longer play in any bands. My latest musical endeavor ended about the same time I started getting serious about second life. I don’t miss it at all! It was fun while it lasted, but I no longer have the desire or the time to pursue any further musical interests at this time.

AC: Anything else you’d like us to know about you, a special mentor, friends or your business?
TD: I would like to use this opportunity to thank all of my friends and colleagues who have helped me along the way, either directly, or indirectly, and who always inspire me, and help push me to the next level. I appreciate every single individual who has bought and used Surge products. Without all of your patronage, I would not have the ability to live and work as a 3D artist, allowing me to focus more on my family, which is more important to me than anything on this Earth. I am truly blessed, I could never fully express my gratitude. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

Thank you for allowing us a peek into who Tao Dreamscape is, his business, Surge Full Perm Mesh and the awesomeness it brings to our Second Life.
