About me

I'm a designer obsessed with clean and clear design.
I want to build thoughtful products that enrich the lives of both their users and the teams that create them.

I'm also the founder of 'Women in Design - Reykjavik'. A growing community that showcases the amazing work of female designers in Iceland.
