You may or may not be aware, I have been promoting chess in Hoboken
for many years now. I am proud to say I have taught over 2500children how to play the greatest of games.
time we have been to over 50 tournaments, where I am very, very proud to say we have championed not only in a few, not many,
but in ALL of them! Including 5 titles as New Jersey State Champions in a row.
The Hoboken Chess Club has been featured in numerous
newspapers and have been covered on the local television networks a few times for these outstanding successes. And just recently
the City of Hoboken had a dedication in my honor and dedicated 3 chess tables at Church Square Park
to myself and our program.
I have volunteered in this community in organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club, The Hoboken Library, The Hoboken
Family Alliance, The Hoboken Housing authority, The Police department, National night out, The Hoboken Recreation department,
Coaching Baseball, Basketball and Soccer, to name a few and was given a special award At DeBaun auditorium in front of a few
hundred or so community members as A community hero, An honor I am most proud of.
However, my biggest joy is teaching children how to play for the first time, which I truly believe I excel more so
then in my outstanding tournament record!
