Phil Tiso is a good man in a tight corner, which is a fortunate thing for him since that seems to be his native environment. Phil is an avid reader and collector of words and books. He’s been a resident of California since 1978. Phil is a graduate of UC San Diego and is currently a Principal Editor in the Division of General Internal Medicine at UC San Francisco. He is excited to be making his third stop on the UC tour the UC Riverside Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing.
