How did you first hear about Umbraco CMS?
So, I feel like I've answered a bunch of your questions via an article on my blog already :-) (see: https://heatherfloyd.com/blog/posts/how-an-industry-becomes-a-community/)
How long have you been part of the Umbraco community and what do you like / dislike about it?
I've been involved since 2006. I dislike how few Umbracians there are in NYC :-(
Have you been to Codegarden? If yes, what did you think about it, if no, is there any reason why?
Yes, I have been several times - as both a speaker and a regular attendee. Once you go once - then you always want to come back. It's just lovely to hug all the people you chat with on Twitter and the Umbraco Cloud Support folks (who are my best friends!) and soak up all that jazzy Umbraco energy
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?
If you could offer a new member of the community one bit of advice, what would it be?
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.
What does a typical day look like for you during the working week?
What do you do in your spare time? Hobbies?
Anything else you'd like to share with the Umbraco Community?
