About Jim Dandy

I've enjoyed chess since grade school and I like a challenging game. Sometimes my work schedule is heavy, but generally 3 days per move with a 7 day reserve is more than enough for me. I hate time-out game-endings, but if I see you are playing other games and ignoring the game with me, I'll take a time-out victory. But I don't mind stretching a game or 2 out long-term if you have the courtesy to inform me that you need the extra time for personal reasons. I'm looking forward to meeting other chess enthusiasts around the world who aren't afraid to say "Hi !".
I grew up in New Jersey, but now live in Ohio. I work with adults with developmental disabilities now, but have also worked with adults rehabilitating from traumatic brain injuries and adolescent girls who've been abused and have behavioral difficulties.
I've also made forays into Finance and Insurance. That's taught me about myself, that I'm much more of a service person than a salesman. It's also taught me that most people THINK they prefer the service oriented guy, but actually prefer the salesman! LOL! Examples available upon inquiry...
