A new "new" player; started playing when I was 5 or 6, but then didn't play again for more than 20 years. Rediscovering the game and kicking myself for taking such a long hiatus. Currently studying Sicilian, Ruy Lopez, and King's Indian.
I am from the USA but I live in China, where I work as a musician, model, actor, and teach at a university. I teach English, Music History, and oversee the Drama Club as well as assist with the Chess Club You can check out my bands at these locations:

Thanks for reading, happy chess.
