SANDY: How did you discover SL? what brought you inworld?ZERBIE:My friend saw an infomercial on tv about being able to make a living on second life. So called me and told me about it, so i created an avatar Zerbie(what my mom calls me). I then discovered that people can perform in Second Life but then my mission change. I now became interested in singing then anything else.

SANDY: Did you ever think to use your real name for what you usually do in Second Life?

SANDY:How would you describe your style?ZERBIE:hmmm lol I'm a producers nightmare i'm a bit all over the place. I would say pop contemporary/world.
