About Me

Heyo. So I do leftist video games. Currently working on a Palestinian skating game. I'm trying to give VR devices to artists for them to help do 3d modeling with.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've hosted, surfed, used it a lot actually. Met some good people, some not-so-good people, generally positive experiences though.


Been reading a lot by black authors and civil war historians, since like August 2020. Also have read a fair bit on the far right. There's an Indian version of that, and I grew up with some of it, and became very far left.

I can talk a lot about pop psychology, including Quiet, about introverts, Hyperbole and a Half.

there are some webcomics you should know about:
Dumbing of Age, Atomic Robo, Vattu, Lucid TV
and, begrudgingly, I think Rick and Morty is a real effin good template for scriptwriting and deserves to be emulated if you're trying to make mass media stuff

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived in the woods outside Berkeley and SF for a while, after a west coast bike trip, and spent most of my time in writing in starbucks and whole foods.

Teach, Learn, Share

Dumpster diving, some 3d art stuff, some electrical engineering stuff.

What I Can Share with Hosts

all the above pretty much. I can cook, give you a guest room, show you around town with a second bike, a lot of stuff.

I usually have with me some kind of VR device so you can play with that, Half Life Alyx, and 3d drawing in VR.

Countries I’ve Visited

China, Greece, Iceland, India, Israel, Mexico, Palestine, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States
