I have a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree from Kean University in New Jersey. My concentration was literature. I am an avid baseball fan. I played first board on the winning team at the U.S. Amateur Team East tournament in 1999. In 1990, I finished first in a FIDE-rated futurity at Elmwood Park, NJ. In 1985, I tied for first place as top state resident at the New Jersey Open but lost the trophy on tie-break.
