Welcome to the website of styropyro, where you will find my tutorials, pictures, videos, reviews, and more!

My name is Drake Anthony, and I am 23 years old. I am currently studying at Southern Illinois University, where I am double majoring in chemistry and math. I am most known for my "DIY Laser Guy" YouTube series, where I have accumulated 70 million video views since I started posting in late 2006. I have had SO much fun posting videos, and will continue to do so in the future!

I have LOVED science ever since I was a small child! I got hooked on lasers when I was 12 years old when I ripped apart (and broke!!) my first green laser pointer. I haven't just been obsessed with lasers though, and in fact I spent a good portion of my teenage years doing home chemistry experiments and pyrotechnics. I am also an avid Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, hiker, and Lepidoptera breeder.

Good science is my passion, and I always have the drive to learn more science (and then apply it to crazy home projects :D ). When I started college, I never intended to dive deep into the physical sciences, but it all turned out to be so interesting I couldn't help but take more classes! I plan on pursuing a PhD in optics, with the hope of researching in a lab with lots of lasers, and diving heavy into the physics classes along the way. Well that's about it for me, but thanks for reading and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more crazy videos!
