Welcome to Phil Velez.Com!

thanks for visiting my official website

I manage several social media accounts and use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and most recently Snapchat to promote small business organizations. 

blogger since 2003

I have been blogging since 2003 and write about politics, culture, history, fraternity/sorority life, Latino issues, and entertainment. 

In 2004, I earned an M.A. in Corporate Communication from Baruch College of the City University of New York. 

I received a bachelor's degree in Communication Media Management from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Since then I have worked for a news-gathering organization, a public relations firm, a non-profit organization, an information technology company, and institutions of higher learning.


After I earned my master's degree from Baruch, I received a Certificate of Paralegal Studies from Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus. I then worked as a contract document review paralegal before becoming a quality assurance analyst for a management consulting firm. 


Thanks again for checking out my website. Feel free to connect via social media. Take care!


The Mid-Terms elections matter. Politics matters. Our future matters. Voters need to come out and make their voices heard. Don't be a dope. #Vote

Although employed full-time, I offer part-time communication-related consulting services to organizations and private and public institutions via an incorporated business entity.

For the last year or so I have been updating the 145th anniversary edition of the history booklet for the Delphic Fraternity, of which I am an alumnus and its historian.
