About Phillip

Memphis native. Alabama newspaper columnist and editorial writer. University of Memphis and Jacksonville State University grad. Cardinals fan.

I'm a journalist, a writer, a storyteller, a researcher and an editor. I write about politics, history, culture, sports and life. Stories are everywhere: in 100-year-old basements, in City Council meetings, in aging chapels on abandoned military bases, on downtown rooftops, atop bell towers of Southern churches. And, yes, even in mascot uniforms at high school football games. Everyone has a story.
