Chris Dizon is a web/UX designer, a traveler, an ASU alumnus, and a regular at Wren House Brewing.
, my name is Chris and I’m a web/UX designer, a traveler, a sports fan, an aspiring polyglot, a connoisseur of fine beers, and supporter of Borussia Dortmund.
I am a proud alumnus of Arizona State University, where I earned degrees in Political Science and Journalism/Mass Communication.
I work at my alma mater as the engagement system analyst, where I am responsible for, among other responsibilities, designing and managing our online donation system.
I live in Phoenix, Arizona, with my wife, Nicole, and our three cats. Our son Jordan was born on June 27, 2017.
I spent the first 16 years of my life in the Chicago suburbs, where I became a fan of the Cubs, Bulls, Bears and Blackhawks, and where I learned firsthand the greatness of Chicago-style deep-dish pizza.
I read books printed on paper, and I'm always up for trying out a new microbrew. I'm learning to speak Nederlands and Français. I quote the Simpsons way too much, take the train to work and hate the designated hitter rule.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.Mark Twain

As travel has become an integral part of my life, I've begun writing about my experiences abroad and across the US.
My portfolio site documents my work accomplishments and experience (under construction).
I've always been fascinated with the northwest music scene of the late 1980s/early 1990s, so I created this website to document it.
Through the Postcrossing project, I've connected with people all over the world through postcards. This site introduces me to this community.
