About Me

Hi! I am a 25 years old student of creative writing from Reykjavík, Iceland. I am currently doing a writer's residency in Marseille and am looking to explore some of the other beautiful towns and cities in the south of France.


I'm interested in everything related to art and culture. My main interests are literature and music.
Love traveling and meeting new people.
