How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I'm interested in helping build amazing tools and solve complex problems that involve people and technology.

I like an open and collaborative approach. I'm up to meet regularly to discuss process, strategy, roadmaps, features and ideas. I can be part of workshop/white-borading sessions. Or I can be a technical/design advisor to lean on when something specific is needed.

Vouch for them.

Joshua Duvauchelle
We worked together  •  Certified Personal Trainer, American Council on Exercise. Cornell grad.
Phil balances business leadership with on-the-ground UX and design execution, and can help lead entrepreneurs, executives and other leaders ... through common hurdles and opportunities present in the workplace.
Peter van den Berg
They're my friends  •  Owner, rollco inc. simple, easy, fast.
Phil's creative mind thinks and sees things differently. He is one of the few people I greatly respect for his opinion and his way of thinki ... ng. During the period when I started my own company he and I spoke many times and discussed lots of issues and how to approach them. He translated my passions, thoughts and ideas into why I started my company in the first place and designed the foundation of the feel of my current marketing and company image. He starts with clarifying and understanding the why first before he looks at the how (design) and what it could look like (end result). Phil also has the ability and patiences to guide you to think more unconventionally and yet always lets you create your own solutions. He is great in simplifying complex thoughts using common sense. His background is very diverse hence the reason he is able to see things from different angles. Business people are lucky to have Phil as an advisor and will benefit from his insights.
Farhad Deboo
We worked together  •  Web Projects Lead, City of Burnaby. Simon Fraser grad.
Phil has been a trusted advisor for over 3 years, during which I have come to value his insight and wisdom on everything from product manage ... ment and navigating complex clients within the politics of their organizations to life in general. Phil’s greatest gift is empathy, which translates into an exceptional understanding of humanity, which in turn translates into great advice on user experience and visual design, product management and leadership. Thanks for all the help Phil!
