    [Please Note: Don't send me Tech Support, Abuse Reports, or other "Site" issues. Please contact Chess.com Support for those kinds of things. But I do love thank you notes and personal messages! Thank you!] I am the guy who put Chess.com together - who came up with the site vision, put together an amazing team (Jay, Piotr, Igor, and others), and then worked day and night to design the site and get it going. I have 3 beautiful daughters, one wild son, and a wonderful wife! I learned chess when I was 8 years old, but didn't really pick it back up until about 15 years ago. Since then I have been playing, studying, and enjoying it regularly. I prefer semi-open and closed positions that blow up tactically (like the Closed Sicilian, King's Indian, Glek etc). I'm also "chesscom" on reddit.
