Phoenix is a mentor on the Ashland Campus. Phoenix grew up in Joseph, Oregon, and is suited for small-town life. After graduating high school, Phoenix decided to attend Southern Oregon University to obtain a degree in theatre. He is still in the process with this, but in his free time enjoys advocating for others, getting involved with the community, and practicing anything in the arts including photography, theatre, or music to name a few. Phoenix has traveled to almost every state, worked with Oregon and federal politicians to better foster care, and wants to make a difference in the world no matter how small.
