VP of Operations (Gambit.com)
I have the privilege of managing operations over at Chess.com’s sister site Gambit.com. I also handle bug and user reports, review changes, suggest improvements and do my best to keep the site free of users who would try to detract from the enjoyment of all the other players. Look for me near the top of the leaderboards!
Back home at Chess.com, I manage our talented development team for Four Player Chess, assist with assorted QA work, and hang out with our forever awesome moderator team when I'm not busy losing a game of blitz.
Born and raised in San Francisco, I’m a recent UC Berkeley graduate in Economics, Environmental Economics and Policy, Anthropology, and Ancient Near Eastern Civilizations. Now I'm headed back to Berkely for law school! Some of my more interesting abilities that sadly don’t make it on my résumé include gold panning, hula-hooping, playing the didgeridoo, and reading Ancient Egyptian.
While I’m no master (yet!) I’ve been playing since the age of four and have taught my university’s chess classes.
