I'm self-educated. I consult and write in software testing.
I wrote a book called Secrets of a Buccaneer-Scholar. Check it out!
I accept nearly all challenges, but beware, I like to get to know the people I play. I chat a lot. I think of chess as a human struggle, not so much a logical one. In other words, we're struggling with our emotions about winning and losing and are we clever or stupid. We are also learning. If you're rating is lower than mine, I'm happy to coach you (in unrated games). If you're rating is higher than mine, please coach me.
