Henry Kokkeler is a recent graduate of Washington State University and earned his bachelor's degrees in history and political science. For as long as he can remember, he has loved studying the past and the art of historical storytelling. Growing up in a Navy family, he has lived and traveled all across the world, constantly being exposed to the weight of history and its influence on his life and his surroundings. His family settled in northern Virginia where he has lived for over a decade and quickly fell in love with the local museums, Civil War battle sites, and endless reach of historical locations. He hopes to share his love for storytelling and to stir passions that only a deep connection with the past can excite.
