Parker O'Halloran

Parker is a seasoned writer and editor living in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Parker was born in the shadows of New Hampshire's White Mountains. The oldest trick in the book landed him on this northern island—he fell for an Icelandic woman and now has two half-Viking daughters. He is a writer and editor based in Reykjavík and working with the terrific team at Business Iceland. Parker enjoys Iceland's less-traveled roads, skiing, and stunning views. Plus, a volcano or two.
