My self-summary
I have an MA in Video Game design but I am currently a professional chess player and an editor for a German-based online chess magazine. I tied for first in the US Championship this year and I hope to be a top 100 player World-wide soon.

I travel extensively to play tournaments, both in America and abroad.

I'm open to new experiences of every type, or to share some of my passions. I'm an avid gamer (obviously) but I enjoy doing almost anything given the correct circumstances, and an amicable group of people.

Have a cool idea but need a partner to do it with? Count me in.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a professional chess player. I teach, study and play around the world. It's an interesting living.
I’m really good at
Chess, cooking, traveling, SC2, being patient.
The first things people usually notice about me
My curly hair, people think I'm Jewish but that's a bait and switch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Short History of Nearly Everything, Wheel of Time series, The Art of Learning, various SciFi short stories.

Love food, especially Sushi and Thai, although I do cook a lot (and I'm good at it!)

My music taste usually leans to alternative rock (Muse!) but I'll listen to pretty much anything.

Movies: Amelie, Paris Je T'aime, Star Wars, LOTR...
Six things I could never do without
Good Food, friends, family, traveling, chess, video games
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have too many 'typical' Fridays. Either I'm home in the cardboard box and I don't even notice it's a Friday or I'm somewhere else in the world and I'm also not aware it's a Friday. However if someone reminds me of this and wants to take a last minute trip to Vegas I'm almost always down.
You should message me if
You want to meet me! I'm busy often, but with an extremely flexible schedule.

Or if you want to say hi or ask anything about my travels
The two of us
