I learned to play chess as a child, but didn't get back to the game until the past few years following retirement. I'm a retired family physician and Associate Professor of Family Medicine, Ohio University; retired in 2007. I'm currently living in Asheville, North Carolina. My wife & I enjoy traveling via our camping trailer and cruising with Princess Cruise Line. Also, we live three months in Israel every Autumn doing humanitarian volunteering and enjoying the beautiful land and the people.
