How did you first hear about Umbraco CMS?
Introduced through a job I got in late 2009
How long have you been part of the Umbraco community and what do you like / dislike about it?
I've been part of the community since 2009. I like the friends I have made and there is very little to dislike, though we don't challenge the norm enough.
Have you been to Codegarden? If yes, what did you think about it, if no, is there any reason why?
Yes I have been to Codegarden, it's one of my annual highlights.
How did it feel when you received the notification that you were being awarded an MVP award?
A little weird as there are always others who I feel deserve recognition much more than I.
Has being awarded the MVP made you look at things differently / has it changed anything in your day to day life e.g. asked to do more Umbraco talks? Asked more Umbraco questions at your workplace?
No, but I have generally tried to be more Umbraco.
If you could offer a new member of the community one bit of advice, what would it be?
Reach out and meet people they are kind lovely and generous.
Tell us about 1 of your most favourite things whether it's a band, a colour, a bit of software you couldn't live without, an item of clothing, a book, anything but tell us why you love it so much.
The music of New Order, its sharp its bitter and joyful all at the same time.
What does a typical day look like for you during the working week?
I don't have a typical day.
What do you do in your spare time? Hobbies?
Sleep, lego things, architecture, and hanging out as much as I can with my friends
