Me & Tech
From VR, a passion that started in early 2020, to my first PC back in 1999.
I found alot of areas technology related that I like alot. Starting out simple back then, to knowing more of alot of aspects now.
VR, AI, Streaming, Community management, Automation, Do-It-Yourself (DIY for short), its all areas i have my interest in.
MY interest is not just limited to community/content creation, but also includes areas like: digital history preservation, meditation and homelab stuff.
It's all a foundation in which I am expanding in over time, and love to educate/guide people in.
3D design
Having a passion and skillset in functional 3D CAD design. Initially related to designing custom furniture and simple interior designs.
VR allowed me to expand/grow that skillset into more hobbies over time like showing my works with spatial awareness through VR.
Said skills are now ranging from the old set of interior/furniture design to also include game asset/3d printing/pc parts and artistic representations.
Activities
Since the first months of using VR environments in desktop mode, I saw potential for myself in exercise.
Not just any regular exercise, as I knew that would be too 'boring' to keep up. But a mix of aerobics, hiit and dancing.
Initially dancing being the focus seeing others perform dances in some freestyle club dance events in VR.
It was the driver to get myself a VR headset with a full body tracked setup as soon as i could.
Dance styles that I usually dance in:
Freestyle - Belly - Lap - Hip-hop - Contemporary
Doing this mostly on my own and sharing media to my socials.
Sometimes attending dance lessons in IRL / VR, and gaining alot of knowledge as result.
I also tend to excise in VR as side activity.
The applications i use for it range from VRchat to Moonrider, from Bodycombat to Hitstream.
I also livestream on Twitch.tv from time to time as of 2024.
Personality
Others see me as a pretty open minded VR bunny in general from what I gather, yet I'm usually not taking first step on interacting.
I tend to be very curious, happy, expressive and quirky, sometimes I dont feel like talking and am a partial mute.
My mind can get easily lost by the immersion VR gives me, and thus my brain fills in some gaps on senses.
Those usually are fine with me, like, if you want to headpat me, but ask for consent first if you feel like punching me through VR.
Its a thing called 'phantom sense' online, it essentially boils down to the rubber hand expiriment, which tricks your brain into feeling things that aren't actually happening.
If you ask me about it, or want me to help test if you have it, or enhance it, im more than willing for it if the time is right.

I am defenitely no expert or trained professional in anything that I stated.
Though I defenitely love to socialize, with helping people be more immersed through creating/sharing/showing memories and giving experiences to people where I can.
