About Phil

Years ago, my passions for writing, storytelling, audio editing, and music all collided. After the smoke cleared [dramatic pause], I found myself a podcast producer. I have deep experience in all aspects production including ideation, script writing, audio and video editing, sound design, social media management, talent booking, best practices, equipment knowledge, audience growth, and most any pod related subject you can throw at me. In other news, I’m a comedic storyteller who has performed all over the Bay Area. I host a podcast called Spice Cabinet, and cohost a podcast called o.k. land.
