[ First, thanks to Sander Potjer and the Volunteer Portal team for this great work! ]

I first designed a website with Joomla! (c) in 2009 with version 1.5.9. A few months before I was evaluating WordPress and Drupal, and I found Joomla mid-scale extensibility the perfect fit for the kind of projects I was working on. Then I looked for learning more, hacking code, and installing extensions. And I felt in love with the Joomla Community, literally. I met amazing people virtually, and I am still impressed by the high skills and human qualities from our community members and leaders. I am grateful to them, and so glad to meet them in real life since I started to attend Joomla events in 2013 (Thanks JoomlaDay UK!).

I also started to help with the Irish Transaltion for Joomla in 2009, and it was finally approved as an official Language Pack in 2015:

One can meet me around the JBS (Joomla Bug Squad) and the PBF events virtually (Pizza Bugs and Fun). I joined when I became a father a second time, just before turning 40, by contacting Mark Dexter. Thank to his kindness, availability, and of course documentation and webinars, I've got hooked. I still remember my first testing contribution (on the old JoomlaCode.org ;-) http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=22018&start=0
Now here https://developer.joomla.org/joomlacode-archive/issue-22018.html

Then a year later, in August 2011, I ordered the first Official Joomla book (thanks Jennifer Marriott and Elin Waring). Then I bought the Joomla Programming book by Mark Dexter and Louis Landry. I learn a lot from it, and I still have it next to me on my desk! I am an average PHP coder, learning and improving every day. So you will find me testing for a while on the great new Issue tracker http://issues.joomla.org. Thanks Michael Babker for this awesome tool.

I thrive in giving back to the Joomla! community, while improving my knowledge about Joomla!, and delivering a better work to my local customers at the same time. I enjoy the artisan work, and I wish to make the world a better place!
