Seattle City (spot)Light: Phylip Miller, Warehouser

The Basics

How long have you been at City Light? Seven months 

Division:  Transmission & Distribution Field Operations – North Service Center 

Tell us about your role. What does your job entail?  Basic warehouse duties such as pulling orders, stocking shelves, and operating a forklift. My focus is on customer service to ensure the crews have the supplies they need to do their job.


Hometown: I was born and raised in the White Mountains of Arizona. When I was 16, I moved to Aurora, Colo., where I met my high school sweetheart Cecelia Miller. Cecelia works in the Vegetation Management Division at City Light.

Alma Mater: I graduated from Sky View High School in Thornton, Colo. I did some community work with the local youth baseball league as an umpire. I focused on raising a family at a younger age than most.  

Tell us about your family: My wife and I celebrated 22 years of marriage last September. We have two adult children: our son, Caleb, who will be 24, and our daughter, Lilly, who will be 22. We also have the most amazing grandson Gabe, who is our light in life. We are a very loving, caring, and funny family. We love to just be in the moment. Most often we are right where we need to be, so why not embrace your surroundings, live in the moment, and share a smile.

Just for Fun

What do you like most about your role? What I like most about my role as a warehouser is the opportunity to meet such great people and share stories about life. 

What was the last song you listened to? “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga – ha-ha! 

What do you do to turn things around when you’re having a bad day? What always makes me smile on a cloudy day would have to be thinking about all the good times I have shared with friends and family. 

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? If I could choose to live anywhere in the world it would have to be the Oregon Coast. We took U.S. Highway101 from the top of the Olympic Peninsula all the way to San Francisco. The whole time we were in Oregon, we did not see a sad face and the slow pace was right up my alley. 

What is something most people don’t know about you? Not too much to not know about me as I’m an open book. If anything, I’m a road trip aficionado and have traveled through almost all 50 states.
