Yes, I am the guy who started Chess.com along with Jay, Igor, Piotr, and many others. I have 3 amazing daughters, one wild son, and a wonderful and patient wife! I learned chess when I was 8 years old, but didn't really pick it back up until about 15 years ago. Since then I have been playing, studying, and enjoying it regularly. I prefer semi-open and closed positions that blow up tactically (like the Closed Sicilian, King's Indian, Glek etc).
