My name is Phil Creed and I’m the creator and editor of Covering the Corridor. I’ve lived with my wife in the Penn Daw area since 2011, and I’ve resided in Northern Virginia for most of my life. I work full-time for a local non-profit, and before that I spent more than 10 years in print and digital journalism.

My goal is for this website to provide accurate, relevant and timely news for residents of the Richmond Highway corridor. As this corner of Fairfax continues to transform, this site aims to be the go-to spot for the latest info about what’s happening.
