My name is Theo Nicolaou. I graduated from the University of Kent with a 2.1 in Multimedia, Technology and Design (BSc). I am a Front-end Developer at the Natural History Museum in London.

Away from the computer, I like to watch all sorts of sports including tennis, Formula One and football (I am a big Spurs fan). I also like to play squash, table tennis and football in my spare time.
