I am a community development worker and literacy program coordinator in Lucknow, India, with degrees in biophysics and education. Though I do not have formal education in taxonomy or ecology I am the son of a zookeeper and a park ranger and have been steeped in college zoology textbooks and practical experience since I was in elementary school. When away from my day job I contribute heavily to a number of conservation and science projects, especially the Creative Conservation Alliance, Lilok Farm, India Biodiversity Portal, North American Field Herping Association, and Bangkok Herps.
