Roy Bernabela (MA) studied Arabic and Linguistics at Leiden University. He is drawn to academia and eager to employ his academic skills in a pragmatic and productive way; he is most comfortable at the junction of academia and society. Before he started Woordvorm together with his long-time partner and friend Peter, he worked as a web editor for several academic institutes. Roy expresses his creative side in his passion for photography and graphic design: he finds beauty not only in words and phrases, but also in images. Woordvorm is thus Roy’s second home, a place where he can do what he enjoys and does best: serving academia by creating beauty from words and images for publications. When not forming words and images at Woordvorm, Roy enjoys life with his wife, seeks everyday adventures with his son or plays with his friends.
