I have studied ballroom dancing for seventeen years, first trained by Anna Maria M. (who is currently touring with Tango Del Cielo) and later studied at Genesis Ballroom School in San Francisco.
I have been actively studying chess since 1998 and scored fourth place at the San Francisco Amateur Chess Competition in 1999. I prefer Fischer's Pe4, Kf4, Bc5 opening; and I am an officer in the Berkeley City College chess club.
I have studied salsa dancing for sixteen years, first trained by Anna Maria M. (who is currently touring with Tango Del Cielo) and in 2006 studied at Genesis Ballroom School in San Francisco. I have previously taught lessons at Arthur Murray's Dance Studio on Taravel St. in San Francisco and started the Marin Catholic Dance Club at Marin Catholic Prep, my old high school. I understand that this is similar to my Ballroom Dancing submission, but my dance education was simultaneously of both ballroom and Cuban salsa.
