About “J”

Hello, thank you for visiting our website.  Regardless of where you are on your bridge journey, I am confident that J’s Bridge Pad has something for you.   I just thought that I would take this time to tell you a little bit about myself and how I got involved with the wonderful game of bridge. I was first introduced to Bridge by my father while growing up in Central India. After immigrating to the United States in the late 60’s I started playing bridge regularly as a graduate Electrical Engineering student at St. Louis University.  As my engineering career wound down around 2003 I started playing duplicate bridge and have been hooked ever since.

I got my ACBL teacher’s accreditation in 2010 and attained my ACBL directorship in 2011. I have always enjoyed teaching. As a child, I tutored my brothers, sisters and other family members with their school work. I was also a lecturer at my Electrical Engineering college in India and have authored and presented numerous technical papers at national, as well as well as international engineering conferences. My dream of running my own club finally came true in March 2016 with the help of my gracious friend, Jo Chorpening.

My goal at J’s Bridge Pad is to make bridge fun for everybody. We welcome new players and encourage their participation by having games exclusively for new/ novice players. We also take great strides to ensure that there is a positive/non-threatening environment for everyone so that people can enjoy themselves and learn bridge comfortably.

If you have any suggestions on how J’s Bridge Pad can make your Bridge experience more enjoyable or any questions at all, feel free to drop me a line, otherwise, we hope to see you soon.
