Timothy Phillips

Timothy Phillips graduated from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY in 2009, and now works in the civil engineering field. While this could be interpreted to mean engineering done in a non-rude way, he chose civil engineering mostly because of the community building and human flourishing possibilities of civil infrastructure and because of the culmination of the biblical narrative in a city restored.

Tim made his Comment debut by reviewing a live jazz/spiritual recording, Heaven in a Nightclub. He currently plays what some call "Jewish jazz"—Klezmer music—in an Ithaca-based Klezmer group as a trombonist. The two genres are similar because Klezmer relates the plight of eastern European Jewish immigrants while jazz and spirituals relate, as Bill Edgar tells it on Heaven, the deep misery and deep hope found in the African American experience.

As of summer 2009, Tim will be married to a wonderful woman.
