Favourite player: Kasparov, on and off the board. :)
Playing styles i respect.. Karpov, Tal, Fischer, Morozevich, Kramnik, Geller, Morphy, Capablanca(for his natural talent/genius).
Updated bio as of 28th of January, 2017
Current players I'm following;
Wei Yi, Yu YangYi, Ding Liren..
Those are my 3 young hopefuls, and i think all 3 of them can challenge Carlsen to a WC match and have good chances. The other like Wang Hao and stuff don't seem as dedicated to being a chess professional and have other interests(like school/uni etc), otherwise they could probably go as far too.
Also a big fan of Nakamura. Waiting for the day that Naka beats Carlsen in a classical game.. otherwise i don't think he really has a chance vs Carlsen anytime soon.. haha
I play on lichess currently(imo they have the best interface/system, unlimited or even real time engine analysis, unlike chess.com, or at least last time i used chess.com :P), and only play 15/15 games or longer. Not a fan of blitz faster than that, because i like to have a drink/smoke or two and still be able to win etc..
lichess>chess.com>yahoo chess, which was my chess site progression.. i think lichess rating is higher than chess.com or yahoo, but they use glicko system, and i'm not sure about the other two but i'm guessing not because like i said, i wouldn't have a chance against 2000+ player at 15/15 on yahoo back in the day.. maybe i've just gotten better? i don't think so, but who really knows.. -_-

Send me a message here or there if you would like a game or anything. I haven't played much recently, but chess isn't something that needs to be rushed and it will be there even when i'm an old man. Or an older man. Or whatever. I'm still young at heart, and that's all that matters ;)
