My name is John, and welcome to my page! I am a husband, a father of two, and a pharmacist by trade. I've been playing chess on and off for the better part of 20 years, but just started taking the game seriously in the Winter of 2015. I don't currently have an OTB rating, I just play for fun and to satisfy my competitive side once in a while. If I have a goal in chess, it would be to hit 1800 FIDE...I guess time will tell if this can happen!
