Phillip was born in South Africa and grew up on 300,000 hectares of pristine wilderness called the Drakensberg Mountains. Horse riding, fishing and hiking were his staple pastimes forging a lifelong relationship with the outdoors, and explaining why he has always thought having a crocodile might make a cool pet. His earliest creative memory sees him running up and down a corridor with a crayon on the wall, “watching a line of colour stream out behind me. It was fantastic.” While the consequences were adverse, it’s all worked out for the best.
Phill’s creative reward is a little more complex now, but still as satisfying, working with a group of incredibly talented and supportive creatives who push him to new heights. Phillip believes that being part of a collaborative workplace culture that respects and shares knowledge is the key to any creative’s success. And, as he says – “I don’t hate Fridays so much as look forward to Mondays.”
