I am very proud and honored to have been recognized as a Sitecore Most Valuable Professional in the Technology category. This past year was challenging and I am glad that my contributions to the community had an impact. I have now joined the selected and talented group of only 315 people among 12000 certified developers and 20000 active community members. The Sitecore community is undoubtedly one of the most active and engaging communities I have had the chance to work with and I am more than happy to be able to share my knowledge and experiences to help with the growth of the community.

I will make sure to keep it up with the good work and honor the MVP distinction. Full press release link: https://www.sitecore.com/company/press-and-media/press-releases/2019/01/sitecore-announces-2019-most-valuable-professionals
