I am a technology sales representative. I am a New Yorker who lives in Boston. I love music, especially classic rock artists including The Grateful Dead,Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers, the Who and the Beatles. I earned the national chess master title in April 2010 and am now trying to raise my FIDE (international) rating to make Fide Master. In this blog, I primarily write about music, chess and travel.
