I work with the VLBA as a telescope operator. In addition to chess, I enjoy anime, J-Pop, J-Drama (I'm pretty much obsessed with all things Japanese), science fiction, gaming (video, tabletop, and pen/paper RPGs), and Belly Dancing. Mainly, I'm a Doumbek player (a type of drum) for my school's Belly Dance troupe, but I've also recently begun learning how to dance, as well.
I love to play the White side of a King's Gambit. However, I'm now trying to learn more about the positional side of chess. I hope to play in more Chess Tournaments (I've been out of the loop for a few years), but unfortunately, NM only has a few tournaments throughout the year.
