(Halla Ólafsdóttir)

Born on the volcanic Iceland

with a mixture of slave and Viking blood

running in the veins.


Daughter of biologists,

still able to recall all the names

of all breeding birds in Iceland.


Graduated with a B.A.

in Icelandic and Creative writing

from the University of Iceland,

M.A. in Visual and Media Anthropology,

Free University, Berlin.


Play the trumpet, 

maker of radio shows,

short films, documentaries.

Run long distances,

worked in a puppet theater,

as a park ranger

and as a flight attendant.

Seeking to fulfill my wanderlust

by traveling, living abroad and

by learning new languages.


And now.


An independent film maker,


and a multi-task-er,

ready for coming projects

and adventures.
