Bio


A neighbor taught me how to play chess when I was about 8 years-old. Since then, I've been playing on and off (mostly on). My target for the last couple of years has been to reach expert (2000+), which I finally achieved in early 2010.

My best results in Arcadia are two outright first places and eight joint first places.
