My coach is 2016 US Women's Champion IM Nazi Paikidze. Along with Nazi, my favorite living player is Jennifer Yu, whom you see with me in the picture above right after she defeated me in her simul (see my blog for the game).. My favorite historical players are Tigran Petrosian and Akiba Rubinstein. I am married and have two children. I am a licensed clinical social worker and work in the medical field. I am a Washington Capitals and Washington Nationals fan (hockey and baseball). Other interests: literature, classical music, film.
