Artistic and Production Directors Begin Immediately

The Mockingbird Foundation is pleased to announce the appointment of two new volunteer positions which will coordinate artistic and production needs of various Foundation projects. Both positions, as with all Mockingbird roles, are entirely volunteer, including no compensation in order to maximize the charitable contributions generated by their generous services.

Heather Hanly has volunteered as and been appointed Artistic Director. Heather designed the Foundation’s logo, which appears on all Foundation items, and has been an important contributor in coordinating and designing other graphic needs of the foundation for several years. When not volunteering, she is a freelance designer in Oakland, California and goes by the name Hanly Design.

Phillip Zerbo has been appointed Production Director. Phillip has served a leading role in advancing the content of The Phish Companion towards the second edition, due out next spring. He is the editor of both the venue file and the sideshow chapter, and serves as at-large editor and proofreader for the book as a whole. In this new capacity he will play a central role in directing layout and production services for the new edition. Phillip is a freelance writer and editor living on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

The Mockingbird Foundation was incorporated in 1997 by fans of the band Phish. Through various projects, including the 928-page Phish Companion and the double-album tribute Sharin’ in the Groove, the Foundation has generated nearly $200,000 in charitable grants. All net proceeds from all of the Foundation’s projects support music education for children.
