New year = new friendly faces at Umbraco HQ - whooop! 🎉 Today, you get to meet Pia, a true Chameleon. A COMA Chameleon to be more specific (yep, got us humming CO-MA, CO-MA, CO-MA, CO-MA, CO-MA Chameleon 🎶). What does a Chameleon do at Umbraco? Find out now as you get to meet Pia 😃:

Hello! 🤩

My name is Pia and I’m happy to announce that I’m a new member of COMA (Communication and Marketing Astronauts) here at Umbraco HQ. 

My new title is COMA Chameleon, and as the title might suggest I’ll be helping the COMA team with all sorts of different tasks🦎 So far I’ve mainly been doing market research and getting the hang of things around the office.

Who am I?🤔

I am 20 years old and currently living in Odense, as I have been most of my life. In fact, at the start of the year I moved in almost right next to Umbraco HQ, and I now only have a short (and often wet) five-minute walk to work. Though I’ve lived in Odense almost my whole life I am actually originally American, and I try to travel back to the states with my family as often as I can. I’ve spent all my summers in Florida and miss the sun ☀️ and beach 😎 almost permanently when I’m not there. 

Why Umbraco?👩‍💻

I’ve always been very into computers and IT. I grew up while computers were just becoming a normal household item, and I spent many hours begging my parents for new computer games and then I’d spend hours playing them - especially Sims and all its expansion packs. 

When I was about 12 I started my own blog, about my biggest obsession, One Direction 🤦, and started spending even more time on the computer and the internet. It was my first introduction to HTML, editing and gif-making, things I am still interested in, and the reason I’m considering studying something IT-related when I start university soon.

Outside Umbraco 🏐🏋🏼‍♀️

Even though I have spent a lot of hours behind a computer screen playing games etc., it’s definitely something else to be working full time behind one as I do atm here at Umbraco until I start uni. 

So when I’m not at Umbraco I try to get moving and stay fairly active. Most of my free time is spent playing volleyball and I also like to hit the gym after work on the few days I don’t have practice.

That being said, I also enjoy relaxing, laying back and watching a good movie, or going out for a good time with my friends and colleagues. Even though I’ve only been here for about a month I’ve already been out with my lovely colleagues a couple of times, and I can’t wait to meet the rest of Umbraco HQ and the Umbraco community soon!
