My name is Lea Verou (Lea being short for Michailia or Μιχαήλια) and I’m a web standards geek / front-end engineer / web designer / speaker currently living in Greece (but I travel a lot). In the past, I’ve worked for W3C/MIT. I was the co-founder of a Greek startup called Fresset Ltd although these days my focus has shifted from it. I’m currently writing a book for O’Reilly, titled “CSS Secrets”.
I hold a BSc in Computer Science from Athens University of Economics and Business, in which I have co-organized a 4th year undergrad course about web-development in the past.
