Stories Are Everything

My entire career has been creative, in one way or another. I have started my own businesses, released works of art, independently and through major publishers, in addition to receiving awards for my work in the theater.

I am a multi-passionate artist. I see this as my biggest strength. I have experience from many fields, and they all boil down to two essential qualities: People and stories.

I am a theater director, actor and composer, so I have heaps of experience working with people, both as a leader and collaborator.

I am also aware of the fact that our most important asset, regardless of our field, are stories. Whether we're talking marketing, music or literature, it's all about having a compelling narrative. Without that, we are dead in the water.

That's where I come in: I'm a storyteller.


I had the opportunity to observe Eyvindur’s work as the Narrative Lead for the upcoming mobile edition of Solid Cloud’s popular Starborne property. As a manager, he was both fair and encouraging. His strength as a narrative designer was evident in the questions he posed as well as the flags he raised as we worked to refine the written product and enhance the overall quality of our work. Besides his skill as a writer and designer, Eyvindur also has a proven track record in marketing and brand engagement.

You are a person with incredible talent in so many ways. Listening to your music and your connection to the the other artists is wonderful to see and hear. It is nice to get advice, opinions and suggestions from you. We will keep sharing our love for music and the artists

As songwriter I have always struggled with productivity and consistency. As a result, the lack of these two important things have affected my confidence in songwriting. Eyvindur’s approach to songwriting, time management and goal setting has boosted my productivity and rekindled my passion for writing songs since now I am writing songs like there is no tomorrow! I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to boost their productivity and creativity permanently!!!

Eyvindur is a true teaching artist. Anyone who works with him will know this from the first few minutes of conversation. His method is direct, well thought out, and focused on results. I strongly recommend working with him if you are looking to take your work process to the next level.
