Michael SnyderColumbus, OH, United States
I am a terrible chess player but with a fascination of chess pieces. I'm a former academic turned techie after the end of the Cold War. I studied at Ohio State University and Indiana University, and abroad in the Soviet Union, Finland, and Slovakia. I served in both the US Army and the US Peace Corps. Now I drive a desk and try to interest my son in chess, which can be a tough sell over computer games.
