Christian Hale has lived and worked overseas for the last 5 years in various war zones and post-conflict countries. He enjoys traveling to future-conflict zones as well when he's on vacation. Sometimes Christian has a job, but almost never a lucrative or a heroic one. He is waiting for an apocalyptic currency devaluation of the American dollar so that his student loan payments become affordable. Until then, he stays in hostels and eats cereal straight from the box for dinner.
