I love everything about chess including its history!  I collect chess books, but only have a few old ones.  I enjoy teaching chess and helping others if I can in their quest of getting better.  My hobbies and interests are reading, landscaping, woodworking , astronomy, sports and ancient history. Books that I love to read are the  Classics, SF, Fantasy, Civil War, Chess and reference books of all kinds, including some Bio's of my favorite historical figures. My favorite chess player of all time is US Champion Harry Nelson Pillsbury, and my favorite World Champion is Emanuel Lasker! I love OTB play and try to get to as many tournaments as time permits.  The picture of me is at the Renaissance Faire, picked to help out in one of their performances.  I'm not a good actor!
