He started his career in Djerv 1919; and later played for Vålerenga and Fyllingen.[1] He joined the newly founded club FK Haugesund ahead of the 1994 season, and became a stalwart in the team. He left FK Haugesund in 1998, went on trial in China but played for Örebro SK in 1999. He returned to FK Haugesund in the summer of 2000 as playing assistant coach, but left the club after the 2000 season.[2] He continued as assistant coach under Kjell-Inge Bråtveit,[3] who was fired after the 2002 season.
