Hi there!


I'm Phillip & I'm

happy you stopped by!

From the backs of cereal boxes to old comic books and magazines, I write because I love to read. And I love to read because I believe in the power of stories, how they instantly transported a bored  kid from West Texas to anywhere he wanted to go - just by turning the pages of books.

I talk about this in my new book, #TheHappyManifesto - Three Rules for Happier Students, and as a speaker. My goal is to help educational leaders & parents create positive learning environments one happy student at a time! For more information download the 'Speaker Info' deck or contact me.
