It does not matter what stage in life I am in, or what I am preoccupied with at any given time; Chess has always been a part of my life. In the 20 years I have been alive, 15 of those have included Chess. It's mainly a hobby to me, but there will be those times where I feel the need to compete and test my skills. My game needs much improvement (Especially the openings.....Keep at it so I can get better!), but that doesn't stop me from loving to play the game of Chess. No one in my town in Oregon is interested in Chess, so I gladly accept any challenge online. Bobby Fischer is my main inspiration. I also like music. My favorite artists are Van Halen, RUSH, Avenged Sevenfold, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), Queens Of The Stone Age, and Metallica. I'm a rock kind of Kid. Enjoy the games!
