Katrín (or Kata) leads multiple facets of the design and production of characters and game environments at Myrkur.

Growing up on a farm in the north of Iceland, surrounded by unparalleled nature, fresh air, and no internet, she developed a deep love for books and stories, while also spending her time learning a multitude of peculiar talents. Whether it’s dying ties, cutting smoked fish, carpenting, making sushi or Cambodian flutes, or even turning sheep droppings into kindling, Kata is the person you want by your side. She’s a jack-of-most-trades, every one of which is a valuable addition to the team. In recent months, her love of baking has begun to have a negative impact on general office waistlines. On the bright side, this proved to be a great incentive for the establishment of regular company trips to the gym.
When time allows, she loves to enjoy the quiet, spending most weekends cozied up at home with a good book or a great game.
Kata’s favorite games include Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, Sims 2 and Heroes of Might and Magic 3.
