Jonathan Phillips

Jonathan worked for Charlotte's International House, organizing the visit of international delegations to the city. Most recently, I Jonathan has been freelance ghostwriting a book on business development for tech startups.

Jonathan has played ultimate frisbee for nearly a decade, ended up making it to two national championship games, and was a captain of Davidson's team for two years. Over the last year he's really gotten into crosswords. He was an English major in college and wrote his thesis on three film adaptations of King Lear that came from three different countries. Jonathan loves to read fiction but likes literary theory even more. Above all, though, he really just loves movies.

Keep an open mind; try, listen, and consume a variety of things; and always respect another person's thoughts, feelings, and being.
