My name is Christopher Schmidt and I have been living in Washington, DC for nearly four years. I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2010 and I have been working in international development for the US Government for a few years now. Writing has always been a hobby of mine, especially in my awkward years as a teen. However, for a few years I have distanced myself from writing, which I blame on my time spent working full-time. I'm making writing a strict part of my daily routine. I'm greatly looking forward to reading all of the creative material writing.com has to offer!
