Hi! My name is Supermarine Spitfire, but you can call me Spiffy. 🙂
I’m a blue-skinned, rainbow speckled alien with pink braided hair who lives and works in Second Life.
I use this blog to talk about what I get up to there. I’m usually exploring, shopping, building stuff or chilling out. I also work in-world as a DJ, radio show host, and maker of radio adverts, promos and jingles.
I’ve been a member of Second Life since February 2015, and started DJ-ing in August of that year. In November 2017 I joined Gorean Whip Radio as a DJ. I became their advertising manager in October 2019.
In real life, I life and work in the UK, north of London. I’ve been a software developer, graphic designer, web designer and tech support in my time. I’ve also been in involved in printing, CD/DVD authoring and audio/video editing. Outside of work, I enjoy photography, writing, reading and making digital art.
I’ve been online in one way or another since 1989, and involved in a lot of online communities during all that time. I got my first home computer in 1983, and my first PC in 1992. Since 2012 I’ve been a Mac user, having used them for work since the early 2000s.
The person I am in Second Life is an expression of my creativity and also of who I am deep inside. I’m someone who’s borderline / high-functioning autistic, introverted and highly-sensitive. I find Second Life to be a great way to deal with how I perceive myself. I’ve developed a lot of close friendships within the virtual world. With support and encouragement I’ve come out of my shell and grown as a person.
Well, that’s enough wittering from me for now. Here’s to much more blogging in 2020! If you’d like to keep in touch and find out when I post something here, you can follow this blog on WordPress.com. Or you can add my blog’s RSS feed to your feed reader of choice.
