Phillips attended NYU and has lived in New York City ever since. He worked as a public radio producer and reporter for over 7 years but eventually left his position at NPR’s ON THE MEDIA to pursue his love of music and film. Phillips’s skills as a composer, producer, sound engineer and journalist work together in a complementary way that give him a unique ability to tell story through sound.
Phillips is also the sole member of the indie-pop band Sono Oto whose latest album was released in 2017. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
