About Me:

A short video for beginners on the Matrix.

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:

  2. Atlanta State Championship 1st U2000 (GA, 2014)

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.
