Iceland - Boston - Florida - LA



We have listeners in 115 countries and have been listed in New&Noteworthy and What´s Hot section. With almost 150 episodes, we are very proud of our show. We changed it from daily to weekly so we wouldn´t kill ourselves and could pursue our other passion: music

Success Story at MI:

Interview with Modernpreneur:

Dan´s first visit to Iceland so showed him all the main places and bars of course. My best friend Frikki got married, I was his maid of honor/best woman. Had a Zumba Masterclass. Did 3 photo shoots and interviews, including 2 radio interviews, one where Anna and The Bells song "Show Me Love" was played on the radio for the first time. What a feeling!

Best of all to meet my family and friends back at home. I hadn´t seen them for a while.




We stopped in Boston on our way back to LA at my relative Thor´s place and saw Boston Commons, took a tour of Sam Adam´s Brewery and walked along the Freedom trail. Of course we had tons of Clam Chowder and stopped where "Everybody Knows Your Name"=Cheers. I fell in love with Boston. What a beautiful city!

Family vacation! Even Frikki was there for the Zumba convention so it felt like the whole family was there. Loved getting to know my nieces, I hadn´t seen them since they were little. We spent the days swimming in the swimming pool, shopping, eating at restaurants and going to Universal and Disney World. The Harry Potter World at Universal was AMAZING!

-networking events, my favorite by far NARIP events
-Asia Launch Party feat. John Payne
-seeing our friends in concert
-networking and BBQ at The Piano Bar

Hello 2014

"Time flies by when you´re having fun".....
or in my case, when you form your own company :P

Dan and I formed our own company called Entertainment Drive-Thru, a daily podcast where we interview today´s most inspiring people in the entertainment industry.

After a month we´ve had listeners in over 60 countries, 6 out of 7 continents and listed in New&Noteworthy in Music, TV&Film and Business! Really happy with the success!

Here´s the tidbits of my year so far
-been hanging out at the Comedy Store, hanging with friends and scouting for interviewees
-My family visited and after 3 years missing Christmas finally had Claessen Christmas appetizer with my family. So happy to be with them and my amazing husband
-Zumba conference with my mom and sister, so great to see them
-My best friend Alexandra visited, we were both crazy busy workaholics but at least spent her birthday with her and cocktails at Roosevelt like we do :P
-Minna visited from Finland, we went to a music business seminar at The Cool School, so awesome!
-supported my husband and friends and saw them perform
-Ligia, my Romanian friend came all the way from Germany to see us. Was a workaholic but thanks to our friend Alfredo we took Ligia to Vegas and had a blast, including seeing Celine Dion, playing Sex and the City slot machine with a cosmo in hand and strip club (when in Vegas :P ) 
-Sex and the city and wine with my girl Moa...gotta have girls night
-Saw Jeff Garlin perform at Flappers with Dan, Steve and Mimi
-Left the catering and Sugar Factory job, it was too much work. Want to focus on my company!
-Thousands of game night with Hanna, Mike, Steve and other good friends. So thankful to have them

Been workaholics lately but try to go out regularly and at least have game nights with friends. Super excited for Crystal and Jeremie moving to LA and hopefully we´ll find a house together. that´s the next step, as for the podcast, amazing guests on the way! 

Love my job thought, meeting so many people, getting so much advice and exciting things happening.

Birthday, Christmas and New Years

What an awesome and my man Dan took our own tour of Dash, Greystone Manor, My Name is Earl, Grey´s Anatomy and Back to the Future. Got a Sprinkles cupcake from an ATM and had Burger King where Doc Brown´s house (from Back to the Future) used to be. When I came home he gave me my awesome present....a Minnie Mouse Snuggie and hat. It´s soooo adorable and comfortable! Ended the night at Blue Palms Brewhouse, him with the best beer in USA and me with a cosmo.  I survived the rockstar age of 27 and think 28 will be an awesome one.


Saved Dan's friends from LAX and we took them to their friends in Hermosa Beach where we went to a British pub Underground as well as hung out with his friend.

Celebrated Christmas by skype-ing my family in Iceland at noon and then had Filet Mignon and red wine with my husband while watching White Christmas (starring Dan´s favourite actor Danny Kaye) and Jingle All the Way (90´s). Merry Christmas or as we say in Iceland "Gleðileg jól!"

Spent American Christmas (Dec.25) working at the Sugar Factory with fun co-workers selling tons of couture pops. Ended the night with my husband Dan and our awesome friends Bunny and Kent, who cooked a delicious meal for us (glazed ham, with green bean casserole, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, mashed potatoes, fudge, and chocolate torte). Topped it off with game night. Reminded me of Christmas at home. Great day!

Was working at the Sugar Factory during the holidays and on New Years Eve we went to Viv/Alex´s place for a little party. Hard to top last year, where Dan proposed at Disneyland so I was just happy to spend the new year with my husband happy in love. Happy 2014!!!!
