I had learned chess as a kid and would play here and there, but I really started to get into playing chess on a regular basis in 2009, when I was working overseas in Saudi Arabia in the oil field industry. Using a Google docs, I created a crude board and shared it with my Father and we'd play that way when we could. 

Several years later when I came back to the United States, and smart phones were becoming popular... I know it seems like we've always had them right?? Anyway, I downloaded an app (not originally chess.com) and started playing with some friends. The app was pretty limited and I was just playing a lot of games not really getting much better, so I started looking into other apps, which is when I found chess.com and I haven't looked back.
