What I do

My name is Thijs Roes, pronounced "Tice Roose" - in case you were wondering. I'm an experienced journalist, filmmaker and communications expert with a love for science stories.

Science is the best tool ever devised for figuring out how the world works. Inspired by how far we've come since we climbed through trees, I like to tell accessible stories to an engaged audience. I find science extremely sexy, and am sad it is so often ignored or dismissed.

I try to do this in both my journalism as well as my commissioned work. I work hard for stories and causes I believe in. Ranging from science documentaries to articles about unheard and interesting voices.

In my commissioned work, I only help out if I believe your organization makes the world a better place - otherwise I can't sleep well at night. I'll help you get rid of ads and make content about your business people would like to watch.

Educational organizations, sustainable tech companies, intergalactic space entrepeneurs: If you need help with awesome explanimations, a product launch, social media strategy, an engaging debate, or a beautiful video report: let me know!
