He studied the wisdom teaching of east and west until in his early adulthood was moved to political activism by the civilian devastation of depleted uranium bullets used by the US and UK during the Gulf War. He found his second love around that same time after a short introduction to Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management. The love affair with management is ongoing; he has produced a political game manual for strategically inclined activists, The Game of Politics – Game Manual, and helped secure four Icelandic parliamentary seats as the executive manager of The Citizens Movement in Iceland (now The Movement) a grassroots political party that had 9 weeks from inception until the elections in the spring of 2009. His love for wisdom is still in bloom but has yet to bear fruit.
