Phi thought he would be sitting out the rest of the pandemic, before opportunity came knocking on his door. When he first heard of insideWaterloo, he was excited at its potential. When he was asked to joined the team, he couldn’t say no. Phi was raised in Kitchener, and graduated from the Conestoga College Radio Broadcast program. He later cut his teeth as a reporter at 570 NEWS before bowing out due to pandemic fatigue. That break was short lived when he was contacted by Fitsum. He now hopes to use his time at insideWaterloo to tell deeper, more in-depth stories from BIPOC and other marginalized communities. Despite being a huge film fan, Phi has been trying to get into reading more books lately.
