I'm an academic, a chess player and a musician (well, a drummer) and an iOS app developer..
I like playing competive chess games but I am also interested in how people learn. I am willing to help people get better. We can play unrated games and I can comment on the moves as we go along or I can analyse your games and annotate them. Just drop me a message if you would like to do this. Given my rating here (1800-2000) I am probably best helping people who are under 1600.
