Before I moved to Montgomery I taught chess in Chicago public schools and Chicagoland area for over 10yrs. as a new chess expert I teach children and adults of various playing levels.

  • Founded Chess Fusion workshops and tutoring service.
  • I have a United States Chess federation rating 2017.
  • Several 1st place finishes in local and national tournaments open and class.

My most recent victories (1st place over the board finished) are:

  1. Greater Midwest Class 1st U2000 (IL,Dec 2013)
  2. IL Class Championship Class A Champion (IL, Nov 2013)
  3. Chicago State University 2013 Championship, Champion (IL, Nov 2013)
  4. Alabama State Championship (AL, Sept 2011 1st [tied] U2000, 3rd place overall [tied])

  9. University of Chicago Game 60 (IL, Oct 2009)
  10. Midwest Chess Swiss (IL, Aug 2009)

My biggest pize was $800 in the Chicago Open where I placed 5/6th out of 667 players (May 2007). I have been really active in training my students who have went on to win many local tournaments and I have not had the time to play in many tournaments this year.

    like in any sport you have work hard, practice, and rely on a team and a coach.  I have a very good coach and I see that I am improving my playing and coaching abilities.
