I find that chemistry is often taught poorly or without a purpose. Because of this, people tend to lose interest and sometimes even start to hate it. In each video that I make, I try to balance theory with purpose. My goal is to show the natural beauty of chemistry in fun and interesting ways.

In terms of education, I have a BSc in Biochemistry, with a minor in pharmacology. However, I've always been a lot more drawn to applied chemistry. So after finishing my degree, I worked as a lab tech in an organic lab and then as a chemistry grad student. However, I ended up leaving my graduate studies early to focus on this channel. Now, making chemistry videos has become my full-time job.

    It's for sure an interesting video, but too complicated for me. (and or too long). So yes, I admit that I didn't watch all of it. I skipped to the end but then I didn't understand it anymore. I must say though, that I expected something totally different. More in the style of the SEtoos woodworking content maker from Australia, Pask makes. He made a video about real transparent wood, very thin wood shaving. Well transparent in that case is not the exact expression for that. But was wood through what you can see (not read). He made a lamp shade out of it. No chemicals were involved..
