Sonni Web focuses on providing long term value and Client delight from our outcomes, expertise, and delivering a stellar client experience.
I’ve been in web development, design and the online business space – both freelancing and agency – for over 8 years. It’s rewarding to help businesses thrive by creating and managing successful online environments that measures up to today’s high standards. I’ve been part of so many online business developments, growth stages, pivots, and strategies and the best part is being able to utilize this eclectic experience to achieve our clients desired outcomes to level up and streamline. It’s this high value relationship where I see a direct positive impact that brings me joy and inspiration.
I received a BA in Communication from the University of Washington; lived in Berlin and traveled extensively (I still turn into a digital nomad from time to time); was COO at a startup in Seattle; started my own late-night food delivery service (pre Instacart era); and consulted for businesses in Napa and Sonoma Valley. All the while gaining web and online business knowledge in every direction and working with a multitude of web apps, tools, digital media, and strategy. I apply this diverse experience to holistically help businesses develop a complete, impactful web presence.
I made art before I made websites. This skill is a strong advantage to web development and design since it’s about visual communication and effectiveness. Color theory, composition, what makes our eyes move around and capture our attention, white space, balance, visual hierarchy, etc., all play a crucial role in an effective user experience and part of the holistic web expertise I provide. The fusion of my art, business and web background provides a unique perspective of seeing the visual and functional components that make a website effective yet attractive. My perspectives from my project management and operations background provide the foundation for the high touch, organized, and personalized service we offer at Sonni Web.
The major impetus behind developing Sonni Web was my dissatisfaction, and shock, with the low caliber but expensive work I was seeing done by web resources (agencies, freelancers, etc), and the time, money and opportunities I saw businesses waste in navigating the management and running of their online business.
My standards, expectations and results with my work was so much higher than the average I was seeing in my industry. I knew I needed to build a service that was a solution to the problems I faced, and my clients faced.
While I may have over twenty years of experience with programming and significant professional experience within the industry, it is because I started very young. I first began learning how to program, build websites, and manage Linux systems when I was thirteen years old. Before completing high school I created a popular website sharing my passion for programming and technology, worked professionally with businesses and individuals on a contract-basis, took college courses to further my technology career, and was recruited by a Bay Area tech start-up.
I’ve continued voraciously studying computer science and software engineering and now have over twenty years of experience ranging from working on small, fast-moving start-up teams to large teams at corporations, working independently, leading teams, and even building and leading within my own successful highly technical businesses. I’ve personally bootstrapped businesses that garnered enormous popularity, millions of users, and sustained top-chart positions on the Apple iOS App Store and Google Play Market for almost half of a decade.
Currently, I run Onyx Edge Hosting and do software consulting.
I’ve enjoyed helping others build and expand their businesses, products, and teams. Regardless of the size or stage of your business or project or how ambitious your goals are, I can help you make rapid, significant progress. I offer free one-hour consultations with absolutely zero obligations. If you are looking for someone who will put as much care, thought, and effort into your business as they do their own, let’s have a chat and see if we can work together. You can contact me here.
We work with a small team, each focusing on their core craft to deliver high standard work.
