I started playing chess when I was in Boy Scouts. The other guys and I would challenge each other during campouts. I don't get the chance to play in person very often, because not many of my close friends and family play it. I like Chess.com for the chance to interact with other people and keep up my skills.
I am originally from Ohio, but I currently live in Kentucky with my small family (wife, daughter, dog) as a full-time doctoral student. I work in the field of biblical studies, specializing in Pentateuchal law.
