Christos.Hrousis.

Who.

My name is Christos & I'm from Melbourne, Australia

Some of my earliest memories live with computers. Like freeing up space on a massive 8GB hard drive, to install Duke Nukem 3D. Or what it was like to work with DOS and floppy drives.

My passion for technology led right through university, to my career choice. I push to become the best software engineer I can become. It's all about mastering the art of learning.

I do have other interests of course. Such as playing the guitar of which I own 3. I appreciate all types of music, but metal sings to me. I have a green thumb and love growing lots of different veggies no matter the season. I am also into automotive, and enjoy working on my own cars as well as photography... My favorite animal is the elephant, because of how awesome they are. I also enjoy cooking Greek, Asian & Mexican food, you should try my Baklava.
