Ralph was born Ralph DiGuglielmo in Paterson, New Jersey.  Upon his arrival in Los Angeles he adopted the a.k.a. Ralph Phillips because he had dreams of becoming a comedian; not to mention — it was easier to pronounce.

After graduating from Miami University, Ohio with a BA in Radio/TV, he hired on as a producer-director for the PBS affiliate WVIZ-TV in Cleveland, Ohio.  His work garnered several awards, including two Emmys for Public Service Specials: RISKO dealt with the debilitating affects of heart disease, and VD TELETHON which helped victims of venereal disease.

It was on Truly American, an instructional series about 20th Century American Heroes, that Ralph earned his first writing credit.  Since then, his work has taken him around the globe, from Canada to Saudi Arabia, from New York to South Africa.  His experience spans several arenas: network and syndicated Television, government, corporate, and informational documentaries and videos, drama and comedy.

He lists among his TV credits: staff writer on Benson, the hit ABC Comedy starring Robert Guillaume, and a myriad of episodic shows, including: Fame, The Jeffersons, VIP, Beyond Reality, and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Among Ralph’s non-fiction work are several award-winning shows for both the Federal Government and the California Department of Justice, including: the U.S. Forest Service conservation documentary, Communities & Wildlands; Drugs and Youth, a frank examination for educators and parents about the signs of drug and alcohol abuse; Gangs Turning the Corner, a program of hope showing the public how to win kids back from gang violence; and Hidden Dangers: Meth Labs, which alerts the American worker to the harmful effects of Meth Kitchens.

Today, Ralph runs his own video production company, Blue Monarch LA Productions.  Always committed to affirming the uniqueness of his clients, Ralph continues to create fresh and dynamic video and TV programs tailored to meet their special needs and to bring their vision to light.  And when he isn’t developing projects for his clients, Ralph can be found creating original material that reflects his desire to positively impact people’s lives.

If Ralph weren’t a writer, he’d probably be a firefighter, like his father, his brother and his cousin.  His passion and respect for everything firefighters represent runs deep.

Ralph is a member of the Writers Guild of America.
