Norbi was born in Targu Mures, a historical city located in central Romania, in the region known as Transylvania, home of Dracula. Instead of getting into a job as a vampire, Norbi began playing football at the age of 6 at one of the local football clubs. After playing for 12 years straight, his passion for sports led him to continue his studies at the Babes Bolyai University in the second biggest city in Romania, Cluj Napoca, completing his BA in Physical Education and Sports, specialising in Sports and Motor Skills. In the summers during his studies, he traveled to Maryland, United States to immerse himself in the English language and broaden his communication skills further.
After completing his studies, his passion for enabling children to fall in love with sports and lead an active lifestyle led him to coaching football at one of the most successful Romanian teams, CFR Cluj 1907. In 2020, Norbi’s Hungarian heritage led him and his American partner to move to the beautiful city of Budapest to immerse himself in what he loves most, teaching sports and physical education. He is more than excited to join Britannica and be a part of this amazing community.
On the weekends, you’ll find Norbi hiking in the Carpathian Mountains, playing football, or going exploring with his beloved Golden Labrador, Gringo.
