Hi there. My name is Alda Sigmundsdóttir and I am a writer, journalist, blogger and consultant on all things Iceland. If you want or need information about any aspect of Icelandic society, I am the person to ask.
During that time I provided reporting and consultation services on the Icelandic situation for a range of media outlets, companies and individuals. I also travelled widely and spoke about what was happening in Iceland. An overview of my engagements and interviews at that time may be found here. I subsequently became the Icelandic correspondent for the Associated Press, and wrote regularly for The Guardian’s Comment is Free.
Today I mostly post updates on Icelandic current affairs on this site’s Facebook Page, whereas I mostly post non-topical updates on this blog.
I am available for speaking engagements and consultation services. Feel free to contact me with any queries.
I currently live in Reykjavík. I have also lived in Canada, Cyprus, the UK and Germany, for longer or shorter periods. I moved back to Iceland as a single mom in 1994, after 22 years away, and have been here ever since. It was probably the best move of my life.
I am married to the kindest, funniest man in the world, and have one daughter, three stepdaughters, and two step-grandsons. They are all completely gorgeous.
