As a Puerto Rican, I have known for decades that my ethnic makeup consisted of a mix of Spanish, Taino, and African ancestry. Read more by clicking here.

Welcome to Phil Velez.Com!

thanks for visiting my official website

I developed marketing strategies and campaigns in partnership with internal marketing and sales to deliver high performing digital campaigns across email, social media, and display and pay-per-click advertising.

blogger since 2003

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

In 2004, I earned a master's degree 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. My last full-time contract position was a brief stint as a Digital Marketing Manager. 


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


I recently found out that I am 29 percent portuguese. This is a surprise to me because I always thought I was mostly Spanish. I created a website to inform others about the subject.

I have held various administrative and management-related positions throughout my career, including the roles of document review paralegal and office manager.

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.
