about PHIL

Who am I? I am a 20 year veteran of the digital design world with experience and versatility across multiple visual mediums for clients ranging from small tech startups to corporate giants. I have designed and directed successful creative campaigns for clients such as Microsoft, The Getty Center, Motorola, The Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI), IBM, Disney, ABC, Dell, Acer, The Huntington Library, HP and Intel.

For over 16 years, I was the acting Art Director and Lead Digital UI/UX Designer at Red Card Studios – a local Seattle design agency I co-founded in 2001 – working hands on as well as managing teams of artists and developers to produce a wide variety of deliverables including responsive web products (HTML, JS, CSS, WordPress), mobile and tablet apps & games, animated motion graphics deliverables & product demos (Flash, After Effects), social media advertising campaigns (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest), rich-media (Carousel advertising, Video, YouTube), print campaigns, and e-Learning modules (SCORM, LMS). I have experience at every stage of the design process from working through sketches and specs with the client, to concept and flow documents, to wireframes and prototypes, through to shipped product delivery.

I am also a musician. I own ten keyboards – including two keytars and a Fender Rhodes. I have a mischievous cat named Murray, am an avid Mariners fan, and once performed the theme from “Diff’rent Strokes” at an amphitheater while Todd Bridges was airlifted onto the stage via helicopter.
