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 25 years old. I recently finished a chemistry degree at Southern Illinois University, researching under Dr. Boyd Goodson studying hyperpolarization NMR techniques while studying there. I am most known for my "styropyro" YouTube channel, where I have accumulated 95 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 martial arts practitioner, hiker, mushroom hunter, and Lepidoptera breeder. I am also deeply interested in mathematics, particularly anything that's visual like calculus/analysis.

Well that's about it for me, but thanks for reading and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more crazy videos!
