Phil was born in the Midwest, land of blood, fire and cows. He's mostly lived in New York for the last ten years (there was that one stint in Providence, a city he misses more than it's cool to admit). He has worked in the film industry in various desk-related capacities (assistant, coordinator, script reader, researcher, associate garbage can emptier etc.).
His first published comic work was Indiana Jones Adventures Volume One for Dark Horse. It's not nearly as much for kids as it pretends to be. Labor Days will be his second and he's pretty excited about it.
