My incriminating past
I started my very first job almost two decades ago. This was back when .NET 1.1 was the hottest new thing around. Being schooled in Assembly, C and C++, I instantly fell for C# and .NET, and I have stuck with it ever since.
In the meantime, I have been doing a lot of different things in various industries, working both domestically and abroad.
I spent the past 11 years in the agency world, working almost exclusively with Umbraco implementations. Yep, that’s since early V4 days.
Ever since I was introduced to Umbraco, I've been fascinated with the community vibe and the blatant love for the CMS. You people are amazing ♥️ Since V7 I have been a regular contributor and outspoken part of the community.
In the later years I also had the good fortune to join some of the community teams. In fact, I remain as part of the CMS and the Backoffice community teams for the time being.
Oh... and that very first job I started way back then? It was for a company that built a .NET CMS. Sounds familiar? I suppose one could argue I have come full circle at last.
Did anyone say “banjo”?
I am very much a family person, and most of my free time is spent with my girlfriend and our kid. We live in a suburb of Aarhus, Denmark – that's about 1½ hours of train ride to Odense, so I will be working mostly from home.
I have played music since I was old enough to hold an instrument, and I have a glorious (not) past as a bass player in a few we-almost-made-it-big rock bands. But who really cares for lugging amps and drums around? Nowadays I stick with an Irish folk trio, jamming trads and shanties on the banjo. Or the mandola, the bouzouki, the tenor guitar... Well, any funny little instrument I can get my hands on.
It’s been a pleasure sharing with you - see you around!
