About Me


Sharing Iceland with the world!


I am a cheerful and happy male from Iceland who has also lived in Sweden for some time (while studying). I am now back home in Iceland going after a PhD in software engineering. I like meeting new people from all over the world. I have many friends from various countries and I'd like to meet more!


Strive for something you enjoy and you'll enjoy your life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have just recently registered since I am looking for a place to stay while travelling to conferences (grad students don't have the money to stay at fancy hotels). I am willing to host people in my apartment in Reykjavik and show people around the town.


I have not had any couchsurfing experiences yet. I have just stayed at a friend's place. I am nevertheless eager to surf some couches and get that experience.


I am interested in computers and software, comics, hiking, reading and studying. I am especially interested in free software and other Internet communities.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Everything. A sucker for movies, especially movies which everybody say are bad.
Music: Into mostly everything. I prefer classic rock, blues, jazz and even country.
Books: I like books which add to one's knowledge while also including some fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I moved completely on my own to Sweden without knowing the language to go study for a M.Sc. degree. There I made many friends and the stay shaped me as a person.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share stories and information about Iceland (this is what I believe people will be interested in). I can also educate people about free software (this I believe people are not so interested in).

I am looking for information (useless or not, doesn't matter).
