About Us

International Master (IM) in chess since 2007, with one Grandmaster (GM) norm from 2008. In recent years, I have done more writing and coaching than competitive tournament chess. My 7th book, and 4th for Quality Chess,  was published in July 2019 (Opening Simulator: King’s Indian Defence, co-written with Danish IM Andreas Hagen).

Since 2014, I develop educational and classic games on a freelance basis. My wife and I launched our own company in October 2018, SILU Game Products LLC. We plan to bring the games to market ourselves. Equation Gamble is our first math game (published 2019) and is available from our Amazon Store. More games are on the way – in the meantime, Silas runs a 2-hour mini-camp on weekends with his games for kids who love math!

2020 is the year where I will launch more online teaching. 3 online chess classes are now up and running, and I also have a 4-week program with Math & Logic Puzzles. Later in 2020, I will launch my own YouTube channel.

My formal education is a Bachelor’s degree in German Language and Culture from the University of Copenhagen. In 2001-2002, I lived in Berlin for one year as an exchange student.

Currently I live in New Jersey with my wife Lu Mu.
