Hey, I am Tim,
journalist and anchor with the public broadcaster VRT, in Belgium, where I make short and long stories for television and the web.
Previously I worked for vtm as a senior and international reporter,
covering stories from Chernobyl, Haiti, Pakistan, Norway, and the Arab spring in Egypt,
Tunisia and Libya.
I was also based in New York City as a correspondent
where I was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study
at the City University of New York,
taking classes in Entrepreneurial Journalism and Video Storytelling.
I live in Brussels.
I like to take pictures.
Co-Author of HowToStory on storytelling in visual journalism
Ik geef workshops over storytelling; over het belang van goeie technieken in het verhalen vertellen, over journalistiek en nieuwe vormen.
Ik praat over de rol van sociale media en de invloed op onze samenleving.
En over fake news.
