Phi is a second year student from Melbourne, Australia. He is currently studying Arts/Journalism at Monash University. Music, current global affairs, technology, and eating out are just a few hobbies in his long list of interests. On a typical night, you might expect Phi to be at the local pub sinking bevvies to a few rounds of Pool, dining out at various diverse culinary institutions or appreciating what local (or international) musicians have to offer at gigs and festivals. If you ever manage to get a hold of this guy, say "hi" to him. Who knows, he might even buy you a beer!
