They breed horses and run a training station for horses at their farm in Hrísdalur on Snæfellsnes in West-Iceland. At Hrísdalur they keep and work with around 100 horses on a yearly basis, the stable is for 35 riding horses and 15 foals and they have 6-8 new foals per year. In 2013 Hrísdalur was nominated as one of 10 breeding farms of the year in Iceland.

In his daily life, he is Partner at LOGOS legal services based in Reykjavík and practices corporate and commercial law. He tries to ride as much as possible and a few years ago he started competing again after 17 years of rest. His best moments are on horseback at the yellow sand beaches of Snæfellsnes.
