I'm a 14-year-old teenager from Missouri. I was born in Italy, but right now I'm living in the US and hope to move to the UK when I'm older. My main hobbies in life are Digital Music Production, Chess, and Talking. I have the USCF (official chess) rating of 1829 making me the 101st highest rated person in Missouri. I am currently the 3-years-running champion of my city, Rolla. I went to the Missouri Scholastic Youth Championship in Columbia this year and made 7th in the <8th grade division. I then received a letter from the state senator and had my name mentioned in the newspaper so I'm really happy about that. After that I got to play a real Chess Grandmaster (GM Yury) a game in a park in London, I lost of course. After the game he told me, ''You're bad, but I was expecting this.'' Ouch! I will have my revenge... Fast forward a year and... http://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/how-i-beat-a-grandmaster This is currently where my chess career is at right now. I own a free, online chess club called the A.R.C. (Atomic Rift's Club) It now has over 200+ members! I would really appreciate it if you could check that out, thanks!
Unfortunately I will not be as active as I once was. I now own a $600 music studio and am going into digital music production (namely trance). A store has already asked for my first album. Also I'm going to be part of an online music school soon so I can perfect my tracks. I will be part of SoundCloud and YouTube soon! I'll let you know when that happens. So ultimately I will have to give up quite a few things in life for time management. I have already quit online chess (1 move per whatever days), I haven't given up the ARC. I try to be on at least once a week. Well, that's it with my life! For now...
Thank you for viewing my page! I hope I didn't bore you too much.
