Hi everyone, my name is Chris. I was born and raised in North Carolina but moved to the Washington DC region when I joined the military. My favorite thing to do is research interesting topics, basically whatever I find that interest me. I enjoy writing because of how much I learn while reserching the topics. I hope to have over a hundred articles on Hubpages by the end of 2012. The way I see it, that will be a hundred things I learned more about and had the ability to share.
