Hey everyone and welcome to my website! My name is Steve and I am an eccentric and passionate herpetologist based in the UK, although my fieldwork and research has taken me all over the globe. I grew up not far from London and fell in love with the limited diversity of British herpetofauna as a small boy. I have always had an affinity for the natural world and thankfully I have been able to develop this passion into my career. Growing up, I would always be outside chasing frogs or trying to photograph lizards (among other wildlife), which helped to plant the seeds for my future profession. As I grew older, I started to pursue this fascination more through my academic studies. Most recently this culminated in a PhD at the University of Kent. You can find out more about my story on the About Me page which is both a fun insight into my life as well as a comprehensive list of my affiliations and achievements. If you have any questions then please use the Contact page to get in touch!
In 2019 I started making videos and uploading them to YouTube with the topics very much relating to my research and herpetological observations. I aim to upload a video once a month but this does not always happen. I would also like to collaborate with other suitable YouTubers in the future once I have grown the channel more. I hope you like my videos, if so please leave a comments and subscribe to be kept updated when I upload new content!
