Chip originally came to Washington, D.C. from North Carolina to prepare for ordained ministry in the The United Methodist Church. He has survived five US presidential administrations - so he now considers himself a native of the DMV. If you are in Old town Alexandria he can give you a great walking tour from the cobblestones to the Masonic Temple.
