Chess

Ever since the age of 11, I have experienced the deep mysteries and beauty of The Royal Game.

Just as with Mathematics, through teaching and learning I have enjoyed helping to make Chess more easily accessible for thousands of adults and children.

I also wish to continue that happy work via this website.
