Jason Philyaw is a writer in Dallas. He has been typing words into sentences into paragraphs professionally for 17 years. He writes frequently about the comedy scene in Dallas. He's worked as an editor for Dow Jones Newswires in New York and a reporter for The Bond Buyer newspaper in Dallas. He also has been a copy editor for a mortgage finance magazine in Plano and has covered high school sports as a stringer for The Dallas Morning News since 2008. Most recently, he has worked as a content marketing provider for various newspapers, websites and public relations firms in Dallas, although he's not entirely sure what that actually entails. In early 2015, he moved with his wife and three preschoolers to Richardson from Oak Cliff because he isn't hip enough anymore. The minivan was last straw.
