I'm SharePoint MVP, and my blog on SharePoint 2013 has well over 1 million hits. I own Sonjasapps with over 20 apps in Microsoft SharePoint App Store. I'm both Microsoft Partner and Microsoft vendor.
I started with SharePoint with MA degree in Multimedia and Information Science, and as a .NET developer back in 2004.
I have over the years made many SharePoint intranets and websites, and I have been fortunate to be part of Microsoft's RDP / TAP program twice, last time in late February 2012 with SharePoint 2013.
I have been self-employed since July 2012. I continued to work for Microsoft and other companies. I also started making software - SharePoint apps and started speaking at conferences.
I made bestseller apps such as ThemeBuilder, TileMaker, DocumentsTreeView, TileDoc, QuickPoll, SlideShow, ResponsivePages...
I was speaker at the European SharePoint Conference, SP24, SharePoint Saturday in Oslo, IT / Dev Connections in Las Vegas, and Campus Days in Copenhagen, SharePoint Saturday in Belgium, Paris and Netherlands. I also made videos for Microsoft Virtual Academy.
