I was born 17. February 1964 in Hafnarfjörður Iceland. My father Eythor Thorlaksson started teaching me to play the classical guitar when I was 6 years old.
17 years old I went to Spain to learn music in the Conservatorio Isaac Albeniz in Girona and I finished a Guitar Professor diploma from there in 1986. I had private lessons with F. Garrido in Barcelona and have attended several master classes with Oscar Caceres, David Russel and Manuel Barrueco. Worked as a guitar teacher for many years in Iceland.
I finished a B.Sc in Information System in Högskolan i Skövde, Sweden in 1999 and have since then worked as system developer in Iceland.
