Phil has enjoyed working in a diverse array of domains, including semiconductor burn-in for the first quad-core microprocessors at AMD, natural-gas well automation, and airline group ticket pricing and booking. He graduated with high honors in 2006 from the University of Texas in Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He later obtained a Master of Science in Software Engineering from the University of Houston–Clear Lake.
When Phil isn’t working, he is a full-time husband and father of two daughters. Most weekends, he can be found at the neighborhood playground or singing Frozen’s “Let It Go” with his little girls (or sometimes to himself). He also enjoys binge-watching shows on Netflix, especially anything comic book related, going out to the movies, and, most important, playing with high-tech gadgets.
