Phillip Kisling
Phillip Kisling is the product of a monkey at a typewriter experiment. Found in the foothills of Pikeville at a young age, Phill was relocated to Louisville to socialize with humans and monkeys alike. When they turned of age, they attended the University of Kentucky where they received a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Strategic Communication with a minor in Technical Writing and Rhetoric studies and a certification in Wine, Brewing, and Distillation Science. After graduation, they went off to earn a buck or two as humans do. They found work as a copywriter for a variety of companies and marketing agencies before being hired to write words that make you think maybe you do need to buy a new pipe and pound of tobacco today.

Outside of working hours, you can find Phill in their cave doing creative work like graphic design and photography, expanding their culinary skills, running from their demons and lifting heavy things. Their biggest influences in their creative work are Maynard James Keenan, Kurt Vonnegut, Hunter S. Thompson, and our very own Chuck Stanion. Phill has held a number of titles over the years including DJ Colonel Kisling, FUNcle P. Hill, and favorite son out of three sisters. They live by the saying “Fortune favors the bold.”
