I am an International Economics student in Toronto. I have learned to play chess in grade 6 and played in school teams up to graduation. Aside from economics I also teach myself programming; already knowing VBA, I am currently learning C#. I am very interested in politics and would gladly discuss politics with anyone, so feel free to give me a note. 

I havent played for a couple of years, but in 2008 decided to start again.I Hope to play some challenging games and learn to think better. My aim is to get a 1600 rating by the end of 2009. 

In chess I like to use openings that are less known to throw off my opponents. 

Lastly, I wish to thank for the opportunity to return to my most favourite game in the world; I am now playing better than ever and will hopefully continue improving. I do not like playing Live Chess yet because I always seem to run out of time, so for now I will stick to Online Chess until I am comfortable.
