Brief Bio

In a relationship with Anna Margrét Guðmundsdóttir since 2009 and together we have a wonderful daughter. Born in Reykjavík and raised in Grafarvogur, and a proud club member of Ungmennafélagið Fjölnir, my local club. Sport is a way of life for me, – so lucky to work in the field with great people.

I studied and graduated with MSc in Exercise Science and Coaching from Reykjavik University [RU] in 2012. Also I have received my BSc in Sport Science from RU in 2010. My research interests are focused on performance of athletes, handballers in particular. I´m the project manager of Borgarholtsskóli Sports Academy with over 140 athletes, primarily soccer and handball players. From 2009, I´ve worked as head of coaches in handball at Fjölnir Sports Club alongside coaching youth for a decade. I´ve supervised +20 B.Sc.thesis and received a grant from the Icelandic Sports fund, 5 times from the Students Innovation fund managed by RANNÍS. Finally, I joined RU in 2010 and I´m currently teaching in the undergraduate program courses like the theory of training, and performance measurements and applied pedagogy and leadership. In the MSc program, I have supervised Theory and philosophy of training in 2014 as well as begin the supervisor of equipment for the Sport Lab in RU.
