A teenager designs virtual buildings for a living. During the school year, he made $2000/month but he expects that this summer he’ll make $4000/month designing buildings in Second Life.

“I’ve designed [in-world] school buildings. I’ve designed stores, homes, furniture, clothing,” says Mikula, who lives in Racine, Wisconsin, and will be a high school senior in the fall. “I’ve made simple scripts that allow showers to go off, doors to open, stuff like that. But I’m most known for my architecture.”

His skills have garnered him large projects like building a virtual school for Skoolaborate, a global education project based in Australia. His work in Second Life has convinced him to change his future plans from electrical engineering to architecture, and he even has an offer to visit a leading architect in Australia.
