Phil has spent many years in the commercial real estate industry, with a brief interlude in the music and entertainment industry. While he enjoyed his time in the entertainment industry and had some amazing experiences as a marketer, Phil realized that he longed for the days of corporate culture and quickly found himself back in a suit.

He is a lifelong learner and a naturally curious person who is always trying to discover new ways to connect with and relate to customers.
