MEET ANNIE

My story begins as a pastry chef many years ago.  After working in kitchens, including my own for over a decade, I felt the desire to learn something new and get my hands dirty again.  I went to a jewelry metalsmith school in Florence and fell in love with the craft. So much of Sonder is the culmination of discovering new places, meeting new people and taking myself out of my comfort zone!

Q & A

WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO RESTAURANT FOR CELEBRATIONS AND SPECIAL OCCASIONS?

Old Place in Agoura Hills!!  I usually get the chicken pot pie.  Or the mac and cheese. And, of course, the warm cookie for dessert.  Or a seasonal crumble. You really can't go wrong!

WHAT IS ONE (SMALL OR BIG) THING YOU ARE HOPING TO ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR BUSINESS THIS YEAR?

I am hoping to expand and carry products by artisans in a few different countries!  And give them a visit. I would love to see them in action and get to know them!

WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?

For me, being liberated is finding my peace.  Being an entrepreneur can feel very chaotic and can get exhausting.  You run your wheels and life feels like a hustle. I feel so free when I've found the balance of my work and living outside the chaos!
