/ digital project manager

Hello! This is Sofia Chalkidi!

Nice to meet you.

I was born and raised in Greece and currently living in Utrecht with my partner and our little monster. 

I studied Biomedical Laboratory Science and worked on a lad for a few years. Once I faced the crisis in Greece, I was looking for something more creative. It didn’t take me a while to realize that the future is digital. So, I started following courses and in a few months my first website was live. In a very short time, I got requests to build websites for others while running my own start-up

In 2016 I moved to the Netherlands to study Media Innovation and fast I got my first job as a Web Project Manager. A few years later, together with Rutger we started Webfriendly basically out of frustration and to build our websites and ideas. After one year we launched Kyveli Design a webshop of Greek fine jewelry, but Corona forced us to close this project…Until the next one!

In a more personal tone, I am concerned about the environment and poverty and education. I love learning about historical events and other cultures, that’s why I am trying to travel. I am always open to a philosophical conversation while drinking good wine.  I am a fan of good homemade food and iced coffee even during Winter. I like finding the answers on Google and solving my daily matters on my own. I feel comfortable with the Dutch directness and I am trying to be as transparent as possible. My dream is to expand my online businesses and help others to follow their dreams.
