Sonia May-Patlan Profile picture

Momo•ko

A japanese name I found long ago in a mexican magazine, where you could post your latest party-pics (An offline Instagram before it was cool)

Momo

The name of a girl from a book with the same name by Michael Ende. She fights time-thieves and is a great listener and my inspiration.

Hello there, nice to meet you! I am Sonia, the face behind Made By Momoko.

For over 7 years I  have been making websites for small businesses. What started as a side-gig became my full-time profession: In 2021 I finally left my successful job as software engineer to dive into building my own little agency. 

Growing up in a family of small business owners, I know the struggles but also the passion that drive people to do their own thing. My vision is to enable small business owners and entrepreneurs to have a platform where they can proudly present their work.

My expertise as software developer and design thinking expert coupled with the experience of working for a successful startup as well as a large fintech company enable me to give expert work and advice to people who might not have the resources to hire an expensive agency.

I am working out of Edmonton, Canada, but still have roots in Munich, Germany – the city I grew up in. So inquiries both in English and German are very welcome.

When I’m not in front of the computer and working or playing video games, I hike the beautiful rocky mountains or train kickboxing.
