About michael legna

I learned to play around 8 but did not play tournaments until I was 16 pushing my rating up (after 6 years in the Navy and my BS in Physics) to around 1950 USCF. My best OTB result was a second in my state amateur championship.

I later added my Master's in Physics as well but now work as an IT Manager for a financial firm. Most recently I have moved to IT Security by getting my Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).

My other interests besides chess include golf, table tennis and reading SciFi. I am also very busy both online in forums and locally with Christian apologetics and debate.

I am approaching retirement, but not nearly quickly enough.
