Philip was raised on the East Coast.

He graduated and taught classes from Virginia Commonwealth University before heading North to New York City. In New York, Philip would teach at the School of Visual Arts and work as an artist in the production of television.

In 1999, Philip founded the artist collective, Atmospherex, which would create and perform experimental animation at events and release several DVD compilations of motion and video performance art.

In 2003, Philip and several members of the collective were enlisted to design a hemispherical music visual film for the Rose Center Planetarium. After completing this last project in NYC, Philip moved to California to work as a visual effects artist on feature films.

In 2011, Philip completed the Master of Fine Arts program at San Francisco Art Institute and is currently an emerging new media artist, a digital artist for Nvidia Corporation and part-time teacher at California College of the Arts.
