I am from Reykjavík, Iceland, currently living in Örebro, Sweden. I am many things, a mother, freelancer, project producer/manager, actress, adjunct professor, and educational consultant, to name some. I am also the creator of Empla Vodcast. I enjoy traveling and eating my way around the world, interpreting in International Sign, and talking with people about the future of our deaf children. I am intensely passionate about education in sign language and want to inspire others to continue advocating for it.
