Phillip Hillstrand from the Hillstrand clan has been appearing in Discovery’s ‘Deadliest Catch.’
He attended Service High School in Anchorage, Alaska, and graduated in 2006.
He has been working as a deckhand in the family crab fishing vessel, Time Bandit, since April 2010.
He is the son of an engineer, Neal Hillstrand, and brother of a deckhand, Axel Hillstrand.
The young fisher had his hand crushed by a launcher and his time in the boat was cut short.
However, he returned trying to prove that his absence was caused by the accident and not because of his lack of expertise.
He has been dating Jesse Gibbons since February 14, 2012.
