His work has been quoted in the Associated Press and Washington Post. A long-time resident of Los Angeles, California and Wilmington, North Carolina, Hutchins calls Washington home now. He received a bachelor’s from Wake Forest University in English and political science, with an emphasis on the developing politics and economics of Mideast states.
