Hi, my name is Mikka. I write, travel, speak, and make things. I am a trained chef, former logger, bouncer, game dev, and open source programmer. I am old.

I spend most of my time in the outdoors, following a near-brush with death that made me realize I wasn’t ready to depart this plane of existence (the only one we have, as far as I am concerned) knowing little more than gleaming kitchen counters or smelly offices.

I packed my stuff, taught myself a few things, learned some more on the Internet and from friends and strangers I met along the way, and departed first for Europe and then her forests and mountains.


I am getting a lot of email. If you want to chance it, send it to jml@jml.is and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Bookings, speaking engagements, PR contacts, and other business/work related email is best sent to agency@jml.is, this email address is monitored at all times, even when I am not anywhere near a computer or even electricity.

Where’s Mikka this week?
