Historian, storyteller and authorized Tour Guide.
“I take you there.”

My viking forefather Egill Skallagrimson once found himself caught at a feast in the Hall of his deadly enemy King Erik Bloodaxe - he spoke a poem of the warrior virtue of Erik, and walked out alive. Travellling and tale-telling run in my blood. From Egill, and from Swedish, German, Jewish - and Danish ancestors too numerous to name.
