I'm Gary, I run chess tournaments.
I've been posting in the comments for awhile, but just signed in to the forum. I have a masters degree (concentration in topological algebra with a physics minor, yes my school used graduate minors).
In grad school I learned I wasn't a good teacher, so I've spent my time in non-professional (ie non-professorial) positions.
Oh, yes, in case you couldn't tell, I like puns.
