My new job at Umbraco
After graduating from Web development at IBA, I’ve now joined the awesome SWAT team at Umbraco HQ. In my new position as Support Warrior I am going to help all of you who might find yourself stuck, or just have questions regarding Umbraco in general. I am very much looking forward to taking on my new Support Warrior role, and I can not wait to help and support some of the many Umbracians out there.
More about me:
I just recently turned 25, which in Denmark usually means that your friends and family have a blast blasting you with ground cinnamon because you aren’t married yet (don’t ask why…but it’s a tradition).
Luckily that didn’t happen, even though I’m not married yet. I do have a girlfriend though (who I’m planning to marry of course 😉) and a little daughter who’s turning 2 in July. I was born and raised in Fredericia (about 30 mins by train from Umbraco HQ), and I still live there in a small terraced house with my family.
My spare time? Well, I grew up living only 50 meters from school, so I had to find some other way to exercise. So I joined the local football club and football quickly became a passion of mine.
I played for almost 13 years before I stopped, simply because it got too time consuming during my high school years. I still enjoy playing football with friends and I heard that Umbraco has a great football team which I of course will be joining.
Here’s a picture of me minutes before my first ever football practice - super excited as you can probably tell 😆
When you play football you need to have a favorite team. But the local heroes from FC Fredericia just didn’t cut it for me. My dad and I went to a game here in Odense, where Odense football club played against AGF and I instantly fell in love with the club. Since then it has been my all time favorite football team and to this day I still enjoy going to the stadium to see them play.
Here’s a picture of me sitting in front of the television, watching football. Take a guess, who’s playing 😉
After I finished high school and stopped my football “career” I had to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. All of my life I have enjoyed technology and being creative, therefore I decided to go for an AP degree in Multimedia Design and Communication. This allowed me to be creative but I also discovered coding, and it actually grew on me. So I decided to take a Bachelor’s degree in Web development.
During this education I learned even more about coding, and I got introduced to the wonderful CMS called Umbraco 😉 At first I thought it was just another replacement for Wordpress, but I quickly discovered that this CMS was like no other I had ever tried.
And now I am here, working at Umbraco HQ where I’m going to help our awesome customers and users every day - maybe we’ll get the pleasure of talking soon? 😀
