In Chess, I have played in tournaments up and down the west coast. My latest rating is 1881. I love to teach beginners and those who are struggling to improve their game. I get a double benefit by teaching and playing at same time.
In Astronomy, my background is as a project consultant on several space programs worldwide. Although retired from space projects, I love to show beginners some of the wonders of the universe!
My goal is to make learning my subjects fun and interesting. If my students walk away with a solid, basic understanding of the subject and a desire to learn more, then I have my reward!
