About

My name is Chris Dizon and I am a web design and user experience professional based in Phoenix, Arizona. I currently serve as engagement systems analyst for ASU Enterprise Partners, managing the online giving and events system for one of the biggest universities in the world.

In my ten-plus years of experience, I've proven myself as highly skilled in a number of different disciplines, including web design, information architecture, content strategy and social media. My colleagues know me as a problem solver, a great team player, and a quick learner.

I earned bachelors of arts degrees in journalism/mass communication and political science and a post-graudate certificate in technical communication from Arizona State University.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading (particularly about history, geography, baseball, soccer and cities), watching a lot of sports, and I am currently learning Dutch and French.
