Phil Malandrino has two younger sisters, Lisa Ann and Mary Anne. After college at Pace University in NYC, Phil went on to study at technical school and started a career in office electronics. Phil later founded his own firm, Photo Dynamics, a copier sales company located in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. He was later discovered by acting instructor Jim Bonney of the Jim Bonney Acting Studio in New York City located directly across the hall from Photo Dynamics. After a few years of being prodded by the acting instructor, and some of the acting students, Phil gave in and tried some acting classes, voice over classes and several workshops.
