My name is Alexios Chronis (people just call me Alex) and I am a recent computer science graduate at Temple University in Philadelphia. I am Greek-American, which means that both my parents are from Greece, but I was born in the United States. I believe I am pretty lucky to have been born in this country, but raised in a traditional greek upbringing. I have learned to live in a world that is ever changing with technology, education, and democracy. But, in addition, I have also inherited wisdom, history, and language from my greek heritage.
I recently graduated from Temple University with a bachelor's of science in computer science. Why computer science? Well, I've always had an interest in computers and wanted to learn how to program. The idea of running a program that I wrote really increased my fascination. One of my many goals is to land a great programming job where my programs could be used to create new and emerging technologies.
My greatest weakness is my passion for video games. I am soooo addicted to them!! The game type I ultimately prefer would have to be RPGs (Role Playing Games...for those you have no idea what I am talking about). I love how I can control a person on my screen and be able to customize that character or a multitude of them. My most favorite RPG series would have to be the Final Fantasy series. These games allow me to place myself in a world outside of the common-day reality. My ultimate dream job would have to be working as a video game designer or programmer. Just the idea of creating a character and being able to give that character motion, sound, and personality really pushes me further to learn more. The more I play all types of games, the more I keep asking myself "how would a programmer do that?"
