Ármann Örn Friðriksson

My name is Ármann Örn Friðriksson, and I am a student at FAS/beautiful man. I was born on the 13th of September 1996, and I have lived in Hornafjörður since I was 1 years old. I live with my mother (Eva), father (Friðrik), little brother (Axel), little sister (Emma) and my tad bit overweight golden retriever (Aþena), just a tad bit.

My interests are music, sound engineering, politics and just participating in anything having to do with culture and arts. I have been making music and engineering sound since I was 11 years old, and have in that time set up a musical, engineered many shows and written days of material. I have also worked for the Progressive party since the beginning of 2013, and sit in the administration of the A-Skaft (where Hornafjörður is) division for young people.

My main likes in music are Agent Fresco, Joanna Newsom, Sufjan Stevens, Steely Dan and many others. I am also a big fan of film-noir and my favorite films are In a Lonely Place, starring Humphrey Bogart, and Pickup on South Street. I like reading, and some of my favorites are Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, and just basically all of Steinbeck’s works.

I have been studying at FAS for a year or so as I write this. I study social sciences, and hope to get my diploma in 2015 and go to the university of Iceland to study politics or philosophy later that year. When I am not studying I work in the fishing gear division of Skinney-Þinganes, a company based in Hornafjörður. I am also hoping to get a spot on my grandfathers boat next summer.

I am also beautiful and have been beautiful for quite a while now ;-)
