Description:

I live in Akureyri in the north of Iceland as a full time firefighter/EMT. I have been a member of ICE-SAR since 2005 and I have been teaching for ICE-SAR since 2008. I teach first response, avalanche awareness/rescue and missing persons search techniques. My focus in search and rescue has been medical first response and technical rope rescue. I also teach first aid for the Icelandic Red Cross. I took my first WFR in 2009 and my EMT degree in 2015.

In my free time I like all kinds of mountaineering and outdoor activity, especially hiking, trail running and skiing.
