Phil Briggs is a Navy veteran. During the mid-1990s, he served as a military photojournalist on the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis.

A Stennis “plank owner,” Phil served on-board during the carrier’s commissioning and sea trials, editing the ship’s newspaper. While the ship, during Phil’s time on-board, didn’t sail into harm’s way, he always points out he did his part to maintain good diplomatic relations with people in such ports-of-call as St. Marten and Fort Lauderdale.

After getting out of the Navy, Phil made a name for himself in rock radio, co-hosting morning shows in Providence, Boston and Salt Lake City — and interviewing bands ranging from Aerosmith to ZZ Top. More recently, he has worked as a voice actor in nationally broadcast commercials.
