Philip is a graduate of the University of Houston-Victoria, with a dual degree in Communication and Creative Writing. After graduation, he worked as a teacher for junior-high and high school students in southeast Austin, a freelance media specialist, an adult education instructor, and a television studio producer.
New media and its effect on traditional media industries continues to fascinate him. His current research interests are the changing media landscape and the new shapes of storytelling that it creates.
He is happy to be back in Austin and can usually be found hunched over a cheap coffee, or continuing his search for surviving video stores.
