A late in life transplant to Texas, Wyrd Dottir attended the University of Texas at Arlington to earn her M.A. in Humanities as well as to conduct oral history interviews for a lasting archive at her alma mater. After her graduate studies, she transitioned into the business sector where she is currently growing into a thriving marketing career in the entertainment industry. An avid bibliophile and burgeoning amateur photographer, when she’s not busy elsewhere she enjoys her share of pop culture geek.
Drawing on over a decade of experience as both a gythia of Urdabrunnr Kindred and an active member of her local community, her combination of academic research and personal exploration provides interesting insights into modern day Heathenry. Wyrd Dottir has contributed content to several devotionals, has been a columnist for interfaith website Patheos, has contributed to Witches & Pagans Magazine, been a guest on Wyrd Ways Radio, and even has a song on iTunes about the Norse Goddesses featuring a new musical arrangement by Jenn Mayes and performed by Mayes’ pagan ensemble group: Bell, Book and Canto. As a staunch polytheist, she delights in bringing attention to seldom spoken of Gods and Goddesses in the Northern Tradition.
