Born and raised in Reykjavík, Iceland.
Einar spent half his life in and around New York City, mostly in advertising as an award-winning Creative Director.
Then got into acting. Sideways. On a goof. Found out he was a natural (all the BS in the ad business will develop one’s acting skills).
Graduated the New Jersey School of Dramatic Arts. Further honed his acting chops with the likes of the legendary Bill Esper, Patrick Page, Dakin Matthews, Seth Barrish, and Upright Citizens Brigade.
