My name is Mitch Allen, I'm 23 years old and I live in San Jose, CA. I recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a B.S in Astrophysics, and I currently work as a Development Engineer. I am also a local singer/songwriter and currently recording and producing my first album.

I don't have a playing style, I'm a patzer. I just try to make the moves that wont lose me the game (but they often still do.) I like a good hypermodern defense like the KID, Alekhine's Defense, the Pirc or the occasional Najdorf. You'll usually see me playing 1. d4 as white most of the time. Right now, I am currently spending most of my time learning not to be afraid of losing.

I am now also a member of the USCF and want to start trying to play a tournament every couple months if I can!
