Aloha, from Maui! I have been playing chess consistently since 2016 and try to compete in tournaments regularly. I'm a passionate chess player and love to spread my enthusiasm for the game. I enjoy other games like Hearthstone and Counter-Strike. I also have a passion for music. I study hard and wish to become an IM by 2027. I love to see growth in others.
Students with a goal in mind or a rating they would like to achieve.
I have known the rules of the game since I was about 10. I have competed in a handful of local tournaments and have competed in the Vegas Chess Festival 2021 & 2023. I aim to add more tournaments under my belt. I enjoy playing blindfold and believe it greatly helps your game and calculation.
Depending on the student. I can be strict and discipline or I can be laxed and fun. Generally, I would say I lie somewhere in the middle.
