Christopher has traveled around the world. He lived for two years in a village in Nepal while serving with the Peace Corps. He trekked by himself into and through the Himalayas, reaching and ascending Mount Gokyo. He has traveled into gorilla habitats in Rwanda and monitored the first post-civil war presidential election in El Salvador. He has run with the bulls in Pamplona. He spent a night in a boxcar while traveling across India and traded watches with a Russian World War II veteran while crossing the Soviet Union on the Trans-Siberian Express.
He is now the father of two frequently wonderful children. That, by far, is what makes him the most proud.
