Welcome to my website where you can obtain details of my latest activities in the chess world.
I am an International Arbiter (awarded 2010) and US Chess Federation National Tournament Director (awarded 2012) who has directed at numerous major events across the US. I was the Chief Arbiter of the 2012 US Championship and US Women’s Championship and Assistant Arbiter at the 2009 US Championship, the 2007, 2009 and 2010 US Women’s Championships and the 2010 US Junior Closed Championship. I have also been a Chief Arbiter or Assistant Arbiter at various National Scholastic events. I have been involved with over 200 events over the past 10 years as either an organizer, arbiter or both.
As well as being an arbiter, I also do chess website work and provide live broadcasts and onsite coverage at major events such as the World Open, Chicago Open and North American Open. I have been the Bulletin Editor at the Las Vegas International Chess Festival (National Open) since 2004 and have authored articles and provided photography for Chess Life, Chess Life Online and New in Chess. I am also a former President and Board Member of Nevada Chess, Inc. and former General Secretary and League Secretary of the Hull and District Chess Association in England.
Born and raised in Hull, England, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1998 and have lived in the US ever since, currently residing near Boston, Massachusetts, where my full-time occupation is as an administrative worker at Harvard Medical School.
