ONP Team

The existence of Old Norse Paganism would be possible without the entire team here at Old Norse Paganism. It is the entirety of this team that we in our short time span of forming have accomplished the things we have. We’ve had many successes and a few failures along the way but every member of this team knows that without failures there can be no successes. For us, each failure is an opportunity to learn. We pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off and keep moving forward every day for a better community.

This page was created for a couple of reasons. One is to give you an opportunity to get to know who we are as people. The other is to pay homage to the members of the Old Norse Paganism team and its team members.

Each member is listed below and each of our team members has their name in their favorite colors. You can also see each of the social network profiles that they have as well as an email address linking directly to them in the event that you need to speak with one of them.
