Brief Bio

In a relationship with Anna Margrét Guðmundsdóttir since 2009 and together we have a wonderful daughter Lísa Björk. 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 B.Sc. in Sports Science from RU in 2010. My research interests are focused on the performance of athletes, handballers in particular. I´m the project manager of Borgarholtsskóli Sports Academy with over 140 athletes, primarily football and handball players. For almost a decade, I worked as head of coaches in handball at Fjölnir Sports Club alongside coaching youth for a decade. Finally, I joined RU in January 2014 and I´m currently teaching in the undergraduate program courses like the theory of training, and performance measurements and applied pedagogy and leadership. I´ve supervised B.Sc. and Master thesis. I oversee the Sport Lab, including all the equipment used for RU field measurements for the federations we are currently in collaboration with.
