Philip began his education at the College of Eastern Utah (Utah State Eastern). From there he transferred to SLCC into the Architectural Technology Program. After completing that program he transferred to the University of Utah, completed his BA in Architectural Studies, followed by graduate school where he received his Master’s of Architecture in 2004.
Philip says he wasn’t one that thought he would be an architect all his life. He started as a print maker and oil painter at a small school in central Utah. After being offered a summer drafting job in Salt Lake City, he never looked back. He has been with NWLA his entire architectural career and still feels connected to projects that he worked on as a draftsman, that he is now studying for additions 20 years later.
When he is not working, he enjoys watching and coaching his kids in lacrosse, chasing after the boys in the desert as they ride their dirt bikes, and basking in the sun on a beach.
