Chris W.

Raleigh, NC, United States

While in graduate school at U. C. L. A. in California, I was employed by the Cultural Affairs Division of the U.

S. Department of State, in Washington D. C. as a foreign visitors escort officer accompanying individuals invited to tour cities throughout the U. S. as guests of the State Department.

Born in North Carolina, the son of a Foreign Service Officer, I have lived abroad, and in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, D. C, and have resided in Raleigh since 1987. I graduated with a B. A. degree in history from the College of Wooster, Ohio before attending U. C. L. A. for an M. A. international studies.

I own and operate a relocation service, welcoming travelers and new transplants to North Carolina, providing my experience and knowledge of the region over the past 25 years to families and visitors from all over the world.

A student of history, I am a poet and novelist, having recently completed a Civil War mystery telling the story of the last letter President Lincoln wrote.

A Recent Review of this guide

Chris did a great job of giving us an overview of Raleigh in the short time we were there: from the Civil War history to the new campus with the Bookless Library. We appreciated his own personal background and stories that lent to his perspective and allowed us to ask questions to see the big picture parallel connection to today's news. We stopped to see cotton, tobacco, and get Krispie Kreme doughnuts! Chris was knowledgeable and flexible! Extreme gratitude for his sharing of time and expertise!
