Second LifeI've been actively playing Second Life since 2005-09-17. I'm very friendly, so feel free to say hello if you see me in-world. I enjoy socializing, and I always like making a new friend. If you have any questions, please let me know, and I'll be as helpful as I can be. I can often be found alone or with a group of friends, but do feel free to approach me; I welcome you with open arms.
I have a little bit of experience with everything. I've built some, but I am by no means an expert of any sort, though I can help you with basic prim editing. I've dabbled in LSL a bit, but I may not be the best person to come to for questions on scripting. I do have experience with HTML and CSS, so if you have any questions there, I can probably help you out.
For Apprentice Mentors, I am an Apprentice Buddy and am free to do Buddy Shadowing. Please send me an IM, and I will be sure to help you out as soon as I can. For current Mentors, I am a Mentor Buddy and a Mentor Scribe. If you are not a Mentor but are currently interested, you may sign up on the volunteer page as long as applications are being accepted. For more information on Mentoring, please see the Volunteer Portal.
In my free time on Second Life, you can generally find me relaxing by a lake or ballroom dancing. I am almost always dressed in formal attire. I love to explore on Second Life, so if you think there's something I should see, feel free to give me a landmark on Second Life. If you have not yet experienced the Tunnel of Light and are capable of running Second Life with Atmospheric Shaders enabled, I highly recommend it.
I also play Tiny Empires, a HUD game based on the feudal system. You can pick up a free trial HUD if you are interested and would like to try the game out. I currently hold the rank of Prince in the Kingdom of Sparta. My full title is "The Furry Envoy Sean Pirandello of Sparta." If you need any assistance in the game, feel free to instant message me. I am always willing to help someone out, even if you're from another line. You can pick up a free trial HUD if you are interested and would like to try the game out. If you would like further information, please check out the Tiny Empires Wiki.

Real LifeMy name is Sean Raines, and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I am actually a native to Phoenix, which many people here find to be a rarity. Though some people don't like the heat, I enjoy it, unless I'm getting into my car. I am currently employed by the Apollo Group, the parent company of University of Phoenix. I work in technical support, so some of you may have spoken to me or will speak to me in the future!
Prior to employment with the Apollo Group, I started out at Honeywell. There, I converted technical documents and blueprints into Adobe Acrobat files. After this, I worked at PetSmart in transportation department working with invoices and also tracking truck deliveries to the stores. Following that, I got into technical support for Cox Communications for the state of Arizona. Next, I moved to technical support for AT&T DSL and moved into order management for AT&T U-verse.
I currently live with my girlfriend, Samantha. All of her family lives in New Mexico, so it's not too bad to go for a visit. Most of my family lives in Phoenix. In fact, my father is also a Phoenix native. It's very nice to be close to my immediate family. In 2003, my grandmother remarried to her high school sweetheart. He had been deployed to Berlin after WWII. They did not meet back up until 2001. They lived in Arizona up until 2006, when they bought a 300 year old house located in New Hampshire.
My ultimate career goal is to get my Master's Degree in Business Management with a specialization in Information Technology. Currently, I am just starting work on my Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology with a specialization in Security. I would like to move forward in the Information Technology field, and I am trying to use that as a path of advancement within the Apollo Group. My current short-term career goal is to get my A+ Certification and move to the EDS department which is a group that works on the company's PCs. I will, however, miss talking to the students who call in every day.
My hobbies include computers (which may be obvious by now,) photography, bowling, off-roading, and quad-skating. I am a prolific photographer, and I have an online photo gallery with over 2,000 photographs in it. While my work is fairly amateur, I still enjoy spending the time and looking at the results. I also enjoy bowling, though I don't get many chances to do it lately; I'm also not very good at bowling, but that's not important when you're out with friends. I go off-roading with my truck with a group of friends from time to time through the deserts and washes located outside of Phoenix. Finally, I do go quad-skating from time-to-time. I am slowly improving, and it is a good workout. It's also a good way to spend time with friends.
