I am originally from the United States but have traveled extensively and lived overseas for most of my life so far. I had traveled all over and been to all 50 states by the time I was 17, so my adult life has focused more on international venues. My work experience has mostly been in the world of educational startups. Co-founded an educational non-profit organization in Jalisco, Mexico. Looking into a new project, currently, in India. I like working in stage one business construction because I like building something out of nothing, creating an ordered structure out of chaos.
I have two chess personas, one that wants to all out attack and the other that wants to build up the pressure slowly then attack. The all-out attacking persona likes to play 1. e4 (King's Gambit, Sicilian) and the Latvian Gambit, the Classical Dutch, and the Scandanavian as black. My other persona likes to play 1. d4 (Colle/London/Colle/Stonewall systems), while playing Dutch Stonewall and French as black.
