Military Expo Spotlight: Aeon Voom & Amok Dynamics!

Throughout Military Expo week, we will highlight many of our exhibitors.  Today's spotlight is on Aeon Voom, owner of Amok Dynamics.  Aeon was kind enough to answer a few questions about Amok and what he likes to do in Second Life:

1.  What inspired you to start your business in Second Life?
I'm a real life modeller in aircraft and military models. At some point i did started 3d modelling and Second Life is just the right platform for this to express yourself in a simple enviroment. It is just naturally that, if you are good in what you are doing, people want to pay you for your work.

2.  Tell us about business, what were your aims and goals in Second Life when you started the brand?
I did not had any particular aim as i started AMOK. And i still have none besides to make a decend living off it, as it is now my full time job.

3.  How long have you owned your business in Second Life?
I am in business in SL now for aproximatly 3 1/2 years.

4.  We are thrilled to have your business come to our military expo this year! What about the expo inspired you to take part?
I do know the Flying Tigers and their events. Who am i to not take the offer?

5.  What are your future plans for  your business in Second Life?  Any new and exciting things on the horizon?
We will have a couple new tanks coming soon (BTR-90 - Challenger II) - Since we got the B1 out we plan to make a soviet equivalent (probably a TU-95 'Bear' or a TU22M3 'Blackfire').  We also got the IL76 Candid and derivates coming up as well as a KC-10 to feed those kerosine thirsty jets! everything in mesh - naturally.

6.  How long have you been in Second Life?
Hey wait. Don't we got that printed into our profiles? *looks* It says: 03/12/2007 (4 years 11 months; 1822 days) FINE. Now i feel OLD.

7.  What made you first join Second Life?
It was an AD on GMX. Which is a email provider in Germany.

8.  What are some of the strangest things you have experienced or seen in Second Life?
You do not want to know this. You really do not. But let me put it like this: There is hardly anything that can surprise me anymore.

9.  Other than owning a business in Second Life and making awesome products, what are some other things you like to do while you are in Second Life?
I used to enjoy a couple things. But due to the nature of my work in SL now, i usually log off and do something different in my freetime. Like reading a book!

10.  If you could invite anyone from RL into SL, who would it be?
My best buddy forever. Unfortunatly he is not big with computers. I think thats why he is still my best buddy too. He is great in explaining me that it is 'completely nuts how you can make money with THAT!'
