About Me

I studied and sometimes teach medieval history and literature at the University of Iceland. I am currently working for the Árni Magnússon Institute.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I travel here and there, and it's hard to find a place to stay in Reykjavik.

I cannot host as much as I used to, but I like to have people for a night or two if my schedule permits. Please read the additional info in "My Home" before sending a request. Thanks!


Medieval history, Viking Age history, Icelandic sagas, Kurt Vonnegut books, riding bikes, NBA basketball.
