Who is this Gounis guy?

Gounis is a multicellular, eukaryotic organism that belongs to the kingdom Animalia. He is a comic writer, artist, self-publisher, and software developer. His home is planet Earth and he was first composed in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1982 due to random natural procedures combined with the spring urges of his creators. Coming of age found him studying Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Crete in Chania. However, he is aware of what the sun looks like. A few years later, though, he totally forgot what the sun is since he moved to Stockholm for his masters in Software Engineering of Distributed Systems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. In 2009, he was beamed up to Berlin, where he now resides and works as a Web Developer.
