About Philip

I retired in October 2014 after 21 years of service as a U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer. I have served worldwide at various locations in peace and combat. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering and a MS in Engineering Management. I'm a registered professional engineer (PE) in electrical power systems in the State of Alabama and Commonwealth of Virginia. I am passionate about lifelong learning and helping fellow veterans understand the value they bring to industry. I have been married for 20 years and have three children ages 13, 15, and 28.
