    About me

    Growing up bilingual Swedish & Icelandic in Finland I was fortunate to be introduced to different languages and cultures from early on.

    Later I attended The Stella Adler Conservatory in New York and the Theater Academy at the University of Helsinki, Finland.

    Since becoming a professional actor I’ve had the privilege of working in many places such as New York, Finland and Latvia to name a few while being based in Iceland.
