Halim Madi

San Francisco, California
Halim grew up in Beirut, Lebanon. Left at 17 to study in Paris and Toronto. Worked in London and Sao Paulo. Now lives in San Francisco. 
Halim is a TED speaker, a product manager at Oculus working on the future of computing and a poet. He published a collection of French poems at 16 called Ricochets. 14 years later, he realized that brought him joy and started publishing again.
In 2019, he asked his friends for crowdfunding support and wrote Flight of the Jaguar. The story of what happened in these 14 years. The space between being a poet and becoming a poet. The leap of a cat.
In 2020, also with his friends’ support, he wrote In the Name of Scandal, a collection of poems about sluthood, the immigrant identity, queerness and plants that make you see colors.
