I started playing chess at 6 and played during my school years in Adelaide, South Australia. My game has become a little 'rusty' since those days but I still enjoy the occasional game. I think chess.com is a great way to get to play more often and learn more about chess, people and also about what goes on behind the scenes. To be a part of Australian online chess has made me realise more about the incredible amount of work our admin people do, so I became part of that as well. This way I can give back a little and help others enjoy the game more as well. It's early days and there is still a lot for me to learn, but learn I shall. That much is certain. happy.png.
