Phil Chwalinski

After working as a catering manager in Arkansas, Florida and California, Phil Chwalinski reinvented himself as a food and wine expert with the help of the Culinary Institute of America Greystone in Napa Valley, Calif. He soon became a full-time caregiver to his mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and 10 years later, Phil made the move back into retail. Holding a BFA in Design from the Memphis College of Art, Phil has worked as a landscape designer, picture framer, florist – and now, he designs window displays for his local, small town mall.
