I'm Ása, a 27 year old engineer graduate from Iceland with a mind of an adventurer. I was born and raised in Norway but moved to Iceland at the age of seven. Since then I have used every chance to escape the little island in the Atlantic, working in Scandinavia, Asia and Turkey.
I'm just a little obsessed with photography, scuba diving, and reading guidebooks to countries I have no immediate plans to visit. I’ve traveled to over 50 countries and have knocked some big adventures off my bucketlist, like horseback riding through mongolia, living with locals in Iran and hiked through the highlands of Iceland.
These days my life is dedicated to social media marketing where I have the opportunity to work with creative content everyday for the marketing agency SAHARA.
I have a bachelor degree in Engineering, IPMA in Project Management and I recently finished my second bachelor in Computer Science from the University Of Reykjavík.
During my travels I opened up two travel websites:
www.gekko.is - for the Icelandic market
www.fromicetospice.com - International travel blog
I have been shooting ever since I got my film camera at the age of 11. Few years later my dad surprised me with my first digital camera at age 13.
But photography came a part of my profession few years ago. Ever since then I've been shooting events, concerts and done content creation for companies in the travel industry.
