Tell us a little about what you do at Pandora.
Sonia: "My day-to-day is to manage design requests for advertising campaigns to ensure a smooth transition for our designers."
What do you love most about working at Pandora?
Sonia: "I love that I can wear baggy band shirts every day and not have anyone think I'm wearing pajamas — I'm totally wearing pajamas. I also love my team. The two ladies I work with are legit — my manager Liz met Robert Smith in the '80s and Dawn has stronger opinions about music than I do."
Any specific music perks?
Sonia: "Our office holds Whiteboard Sessions, where we experience intimate live shows with various bands and artists. I hugged R&B artist Miguel. Pretty sure 'Adorn' is about me."
What's the most memorable moment you've had while working here?
Sonia: "It was my first day on the job and Pandora was holding its fifth-year anniversary party at the Fox Theater. I worked a few hours and was sent home early to get ready for the party. I basically partied my first day of work."
What new artists are you totally obsessed with?
Sonia: "Hmm, I usually listen to music from the late '70s to '90s, but my current favorites are Bat For Lashes, The XX, Chromatics, Indian Jewelry, and Clipd Beaks."
How would you describe your style?
Sonia: "Adventurous, moody, a little dark, and mysterious."
What's your go-to work outfit?
Sonia: "My ultra-comfy Chromatics T-shirt, American Apparel high-waisted leggings, jean jacket, and Alexander Wang booties. I'm all about comfort with a little edge."
Where do you shop in the Bay Area?
Sonia: "Mercy Vintage, Pretty Penny, Bloomingdales, and The Goodwill. I do a lot of online shopping, as well."
Everyone in the office seems really fun, what's the wackiest thing that someone has done on the job?
"We have Nerf gun wars after team meetings. It's hilarious to see a Nerf dart bounce off your manager's head."
Where do you hang in Oakland after work?
"My go-to happy hour bar is 355. Solid tunes and hot boys — just kidding, I'm married."
Sonia kicking it in one of the many seating areas in an Evil Twin dress, Alexander Wang boots, Erica Weiner emerald ring, and the key necklace is a street find.
