Christopher was born and raised in Richland, WA in southeastern Washington. After high school he attended University of Idaho in Moscow (not Russia), studying mechanical engineering and physics. After college he planned to either continue school or do the Peace Corps. While applying for the PC, he discovered the PCMI program at USF and knew this was best of both worlds. Although Tampa is obscenely hot, he is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue his education, improve his job marketability, practice his Spanish, travel, and work with a fantastic group of people along the way. Chris is serving in Perú as a water and sanitation volunteer September 2010 to December 2012.
