Recent PHENIX results on heavy flavor production in p+p and d+Au collisions at sqrt(s_NN) = 200 GeV will be presented. Quarkonia results include measured yields of J/psi and psi' as well as J/psi polarization versus transverse momentum in p+p collisions. High statistics J/psi yields versus rapidity and transverse momentum measured in d+Au collisions and their constraints on cold nuclear matter effects will also be discussed. Open heavy flavor results include measurements at mid rapidity of the ratio of single electrons from semi-leptonic decays of b and c quarks and their comparison to FONNL calculations.
