I was born and raised in Iceland but have resided in my favourite city, Stockholm, for about five years. Before moving here I lived in various cities, such as New York, San Francisco, London, and Paris. I hold a degree in film and media studies from the US and have studied French at La Sorbonne. Before starting at IES I worked as a journalist and translator but I have years of experience working with children and a lifelong passion for literature and libraries. My other interests include film, traveling, music, swing dancing, cycling, cooking, crafting, photography, linguistics, astronomy, flea markets, games of all sorts, animals and nature.
