Chris Dizon is a Salesforce admin, a traveler, an ASU alumnus, and a regular at Wren House Brewing.

, my name is Chris and I’m a Salesforce administrator, a traveler, a sports fan, an aspiring polyglot, a connoisseur of fine beers, and supporter of Borussia Dortmund.

I live in Phoenix, Arizona, with my wife, Nicole, our two cats and our six-year-old son, Jordan.

I am a proud alumnus of Arizona State University, where I earned degrees in Political Science and Journalism/Mass Communication.

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 aiming to speak fluent Nederlands and Deutsch. I quote The Simpsons way too much, take the bus to work and hate the designated hitter rule.

If you would like to talk about a project, or chat about travel plans or hockey, contact me by email or Twitter (@substate).

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.
Mark Twain

I've always been fascinated with the northwest music scene of the late 1980s/early 1990s, so I created this website to document it.
