Titled Player
Diamond Member Coach

I currently reside in Texas, United States, where I got a Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics. In April 2014, I became a Grandmaster and soon after moved to the United States. I began coaching in January 2015.  During that period of time I was coaching quite intensively, around 20 hours a week. My students were primarily from UTRGV's B and C teams which were comprised of many strong chess players, including WIM Aura Cristina Salazar (Colombia), WIM Daniela De La Parra Hurtado (Mexico), Simon Vasquez (USA). Jeffrey Serna (USA), Oziel Juarez (USA) and Matthew Alexander Cohen (USA). During the period from Fall 2015 to Spring 2018 I coached at several schools in Rio Grande Valley, namely, Coakley Middle School, Treasure Hills Elementary School, Bonham Elementary School (all 3 are located in Harlingen, TX) as well as Pace High School (Brownsville, TX) where I got to meet and coach such talented chess players as William McNutt,  Carlos De Leon and many more.
