He develops and hosts TV shows, tours on stage with an English spoken scientific comedy set, and hosts events for universities and scientific or technological companies.

His mix of science and comedy are quite unique and much appreciated by the audience. He can explain science, or interview scientists, with both a thorough understanding of the topic, and witty lightheartedness.
