I started playing bridge when I was about six with my family around the kitchen table. My first duplicate game was February 1987 with my mom when we won a masterpoint and had to join some organization called ACBL to get them recorded. My proudest bridge achievement was winning the Flight A Pairs at the Mexican Nationals with my mom while we were still Non-Life Masters.
Managed local club, chaired sectional tournaments, served as NAP/GNT, unit tournament, special games coordinator, past unit president.

Hobbies and interests
