My name is Lucas Persell, I'm currently 31 at the time of writing this, and I have been living in Atlanta, GA for the majority of my life. Other than chess, I spend most of my time working, with my wife, dog, playing tennis, reading, and relaxing on the river.
I have been playing chess, very poorly mind you, since a very young age. I have always been enthralled with Chess theory, but never enough to really make myself dangerous. That is all changing now that I'm in my 30's here I hope to be able to study, learn, play, and grow to become a player rated above 1700 on Chess.com. That is the goal, and this is my journey.
