I started playing chess in the early 1990′s and have been addicted ever since. My first few games were coffee house chess games in Portland Oregon and moved on to tournament chess a short time later. In the late 1990′s I started teaching chess in the Portland Oregon / Vancouver Washington area at local elementary and middle schools along with private lessons. I also took private lessons from Senior Master Charles Schulien in the late 1990′s. I have also taught at various schools in the Seattle area. I have worked with students ages 4 on up. I hold a law degree from Seattle University and degrees in Informatics and Political Science from the University of Washington. I have extensive experience in teaching at all levels ranging from tutoring math and reading to elementary school student through the America Reads program to teaching Masters level classes at University of Washington’s Information School and Information Privacy Law at Seattle Univeristy.
