So you've found me on Postcrossing! If you have drawn my name and are about to send a card, thank you in advance and I look forward to receiving it! I enjoy Postcrossing as an awesome way to learn more about the world and to connect to new people. Feel free to say hi.
Hello, my name is Chris (substate) and I live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. I joined Postcrossing in April 2016 after being introduced to it by a friend from the Netherlands. For me, it is fantastic to be able to communicate with people all over the world.
I work in web design and social media at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, where I attended collegun university and earned degrees in Political Science and Journalism/Mass Communication. My wife, Nicole, and I live in Phoenix, Arizona, with our son, Jordan, and our three cats. I am a huge sports fan, especially soccer/football, where I cheer for Borussia Dortmund. I also am a huge fan of baseball, American football, basketball and ice hockey.
Travel has become a very big part of my life. I'm very interested in immersing myself in other cultures and meeting people around the world, trying new foods and beers, seeing different sights and hearing other languages than English. So far, I've visited Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, Italy, the Vatican, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Luxembourg, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Japan, China, and the Philippines. This year I will visit four new countries on two separate trips: Slovenia, Croatia, Sweden and Denmark. I am also returning to Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
A little more about me:
My name is Chris and I've been a Postcrossing member since 14 April 2016.
I love direct swaps! You can reach me by email if you are interested. Please put Postcrossing Direct Swap in the subject line so I recognize it right away!
Spreek je Nederlands? Ik ben deze taal aan het leren. Als nederlands je moedertaal is, schrijf even in deze taal, alsjeblieft. Dank je wel!
Ich lerne Deutsch! Wenn du Deutsch sprichst, bitte schreib mir in dieser Sprache. Vielen Dank!
Je parle un peu francais! Si tu parles français, écris en cette belle langue, s'il tu plait. Merci!
I prefer cards without envelopes. I like having the stamps on the cards.
I would really appreciate typical tourist postcards that show something from your city, region or country! I'm not really a fan of cards with cartoons, quotes or drawings nor handmade or advertising cards. Both single or multi-view cards are fine, and it's always nice to have the name of the place on the front of the card.
Of course, you can write to me on whatever you feel like, but please write something more than just "happy postcrossing"! If you need suggestions, here's some ideas...
Again, if you speak Dutch, German, or French as your native language, please write in those languages to help me learn!
Dank u wel, Vielen Dank, merci beaucoup!
