Phil, 32 — Social Entrepreneur
Founder of TribeTalk
I meet with students and professionals to hear about and tell their personal stories regarding education and the career paths they took afterwards. Every day I problem solve and find ways to bring students and professionals together to increase opportunities for career exploration, role modeling and positive engagements.

Who Am I?
My friends from High School would probably describe me as a normal kid; a little bit of everything.
The last TV Show I watched was ESPN First Take.
The funniest thing that happened to me recently was my friend got popped in the eye with a ping-pong ball last night.
I got paid $6/hour to work for a landscaper who had a contract with MARTA. I had to walk from the East Lake Station to the King Memorial Station picking up trash along the Dekalb Avenue track.
In my free time, my friends would be surprised to learn that I enjoy listening to movie scores (Hans Zimmer, Trevor Jones) when I work or study.
The most “Atlanta” thing I’ve done in the past month was eating a JR Crickets 10-piece “Dirty Bird” wings meal.
In 10 years my dream job would be serving as an elected official in GA.
Get @ me!
