Full Biography

My work days are a mixture of design, project managing, computer and network maintenance and responding to all kinds of specialized designing and solutions requests.
 
An expert Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop user who also teaches at The Art Academy of Iceland and various seminars.

Font and typography related work are my favorites.

The main reason I like to help users find a solution is that it sharpens my own skill in writing explanatory text and also – because I don't know everything – I have fun searching for answers.
