How did you first hear about Umbraco CMS?
How long have you been part of the Umbraco community and what do you like / dislike about it?
I started involving myself in the community around 2009/2010. It is friendly and helpful. Any time I need some help I just tweet and add #umbraco.
Have you been to Codegarden? If yes, what did you think about it, if no, is there any reason why?
Yes. What happens at CodeGarden stays at CodeGarden.
How did it feel when you received the notification that you were being awarded an MVP award?
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?
It has made me want to run more hackathons :)
If you could offer a new member of the community one bit of advice, what would it be?
Go to CodeGarden, local meetups, and hang out on our.umbraco.org.
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.
Learning is my favourite thing. It is exciting to gain new knowledge, perspectives on life and situations, and also being able to do new things.
What does a typical day look like for you during the working week?
Meetings, architecture talks, heated discussions about naming conventions, forecasting, process talks, and if I'm lucky I'll carve out some time to do some coding.
What do you do in your spare time? Hobbies?
I play guitar, cook, write blog articles, create software, and like to learn new things.
