about me

I'm a Computer Scientist.

A computer scientist from Reykjavik Iceland, with a passion for technology. I took my first programming course when I was 12, where we learned how to make a working set of dice using Java. Afterwhich, I have been completely devoted to making fun stuff only using a keyboard and a cup of coffee ☕.
