I was born in June '72. It's easier then saying an age since that changes yearly and I rarely update profiles. As of July '08 I will be living in Cleveland, OH. I love the game of Chess even though i have some brilliant games and horrible games and no idea what sparks either. It helps me to think more creatively and outside the box. I do not study the game. I enjoy it. My brother and I play when we can and I taught my wife to play but we do not play as often as I would like.
