Hello, I am Sonja

web design/development, photography, neurodiversity, sailing, martial arts, violin & fountain pens

I am Sonja, a creative nerd, in my thirties, having fun with my other half named Martijn. I live life in a little city just South of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

web development, web design & photography

I build websites since 1997. I have always liked and still like to enter my creative headspace in the digital world. One day I wanted to capture a few nice photos that I could add to my websites. Not knowing that I would end up with a love for photography.

martial arts & lifestyle

After seeing the movie the Matrix (1999) I decided to go practise kung fu (2003). I occasionally go to a kickboxing session too. I am currently very active in achieving a slimmer lifestyle and a more content mind! I find that a more minimalistic lifestyle helps with a content mind! So I became interested in minimalism a few years ago.

neurodiversity

I recently found out that I am gifted. Gifted means not only heightened intellectual abilities but also many other heightened abilities (cognitive, emotional, sensory, creative, motor skills, etc). Whether I trained and use those abilities is something else! As my head has always been outside the box and not within the average range. I started to read about psychology. I have found myself enjoying the wonders of brains! Mostly those of gifted and autistic brains!

sailing

I have always enjoyed being around water! And I love to sail on our 25ft sailboat called Oblio. It would be a dream to one day make a big passage and wonder elsewhere. At the moment a "big passage" for me is to sail to Belgium/France or the UK!

music, violin and then piano

I listen to music non-stop. I decided, at age 34, to commit to learn how play the violin so maybe one day I can make music! During the pandemic I had a bit of time to spare so I started to play the piano also!

fountain pens & filofax

I get joy from writing by hand. And I do that with a collection of fountain pens and different kinds of colors of ink. And I really like to write all things down in one of my filofax planners.
