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.
