A Houston native, Phillip John graduated from Southwestern University with a BA in Psychology. When not studying the effects of pharmaceuticals on the sexual behavior of rats, he conspired with a loose group of art and science minded types to organize works of performance art and music based on biological processes called the Organic Helicopter. He has since moved to Austin and continues to focus on the intersection of art and science with other Southwestern alumni. Phillip is excited to report on the vibrant and welcoming theater community in our state’s eccentric capital. At the end of the day, Phillip’s one true love is a rotten, unfinished sailboat he purchased off craigslist. The restoration of said sailboat brings contentment and meaning to his life.
