“A Bit Better Every Day”


I was born in Denmark but grew up in Siglufjörður, a small (former) fishing village in the very north of Iceland. I studied business at the University of Iceland and graduated with a B.Sc. degree before DIVE.IS fished me out of the crowd. I enjoy it a lot when I get out into the fresh Icelandic air & water to do some diving. My favourite dive site is the Underwater Hot springs in Kleifarvatn but my ambition is to find to ultimate dive spot in Iceland... apart from Silfra, Strýtan and the rest.
