Chess Expert and Teacher, Investment Enthusiast

My interest in the stock market began in 2008 around the time of the financial meltdown. Over that time I have learned a lot about investing smartly and buying good companies so that you can watch your money grow over time.

I am also knowledgeable about chess, having played it since I was six years old and being ranked in the top 50 players in the country for my age. I have taught chess to many people and helped them become skilled at the game.

I have been writing since I was very young and have since started Kid Writers Magazine, a writing magazine specifically for kids. I have also written several books for kids.

Additionally I have experience with websites and website creation, creating my first web sites at eight years old and maintaining several popular sites.
