Chad Christopher is a 28 year old veteran, who served as an intelligence analyst in the US Air Force for 6 years, from 2005 to 2011. He was born in Santa Rosa, California in 1986, and was raised in the nearby town of Ukiah. Many of his most formative years (6-13) were actually spent in Aurora, Colorado, where he developed his love for literature, sports, music, and the great outdoors.
Chad decided to become a VetsWork Americorps Intern after a few years of going to college and performing odd jobs after the military. Reading, writing, and nature have always been among his highest passions, and Mt. Adams Institute provided him with an outlet and opportunity to continue to develop upon those aspirations. He hopes to hone his craft, strengthen his bond with his environment, and start into a productive career.
