Roy is a stunman and has worked with farm animals since 1996. As a late teenager he took on a summer-job at a slaughterhouse and saw that there were bad conditions for animals.

He has a certificate as Animal Welfare Officer from Bristol and since 2019 is the main person in charge of animal-welfare at a large Dutch cattle plant. In 2018 he joined Eyes on Animals to help us with our projects in developing countries where slaughter techniques are really inhumane and modern equipment to restrain and stun lacking. He teaches and shows by example how to handle animals calmly and how to use captive bolt and electric stunning to render animals insensitive to pain before cutting their throats. He cares deeply about animals and is willing to work in tough situations in order to reduce suffering.
