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.

  • Well, I'm not a scientist, I'm a technician, so perhaps it's just me missing the point here, but... what's the whole point of this transparent wood? Why go all the length to infuse your wood with pmma and get something transparent-ish when you can just pour or extrude the the pmma, get a crystal clear transparent product and be done with it? I mean, it's not like the industry wouldn't have acrylic glass production under control since the 1930's. This is still a nice experiment, though and I salute your resilience in making it work.
