Phil Rogers Presents:
The Diplomatic DJ Blog, a unique experience, offering a “life of the party” perspective on international affairs, music, and topics in between.
You’re Probably Wondering ,”New Site, Who Dis?”
I’m Phil, the owner and author of The Diplomatic DJ. Born in Philly, raised in Maryland, I am back in the DMV area trying to survive in this new found stage of life called adulthood. After graduating from Penn, I was unsure how I could continue to expand my knowledge in international affairs without landing a dream job in foreign policy, and how I could maintain my love for music when I needed to “adult.” After countless daydreams of becoming a super DJ/Producer/Singer/Actor/Secretary of State to President Kanye, I stumbled upon a more concrete way to indulge in my creative passions, advance my international knowledge, and hopefully help others to do the same: start a personal blog. Side bar…if you do know Yeezy, let him know I’m down for 2020.
Launched in 2016, the Diplomatic DJ Blog is not your typical foreign affairs or music blog (if it’s authored by me, you already know it’s going to be different). This blog will offer advice, perspective, and other awesomeness that span between both music and international affairs. My goal is to help my peers and beyond understand the world around them and prove that adulthood does not have to be mundane and routine. Meanwhile, I will follow my own advice and kick adulthood in the butt!
In a sense, think of the Diplomatic DJ Blog as a variation of The Weeknd’s old hairstyle: business cocktail hour in the front and party in the back. #Classy
Let me be honest. This is my first time creating a blog and my first time putting my opinions “out there.” I’m not an “expert” in international affairs or cultural topics… yet. However, I can guarantee this: you will receive a genuine voice from a Teddy Bear (with a leather jacket ) that has a passion for discovering and understanding the challenges facing the global community, exchanging ideas on music and other culturally relevant themes.
