Phil grew up in Sudbury Ontario playing piano and drums and trying his hand at composing from a very early age. He could not know that someday he would be scoring the soundtrack to a film featuring iconic images of his hometown by the renowned artist Ed Burtynsky. However, his interests led to a vital audio internship at the Banff Center where he came into contact with many wonderful artists who imparted their craft and insight in the art of soundtrack creation. Since then Phil has scored soundtracks for over 30 films, as well as dozens of dance productions and art installations.
