Philip is an actor born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. From a young age, Philip knew he was destined to be either a wizard or a performer. He would frequently liven up family gatherings with magic shows that every single person always watched voluntarily. Unfortunately at the tender age of 11, he had no Hogwarts letter to speak of, and thus the former dream was (partially) crushed. Luckily by this time, he had several years of Saturday morning "Adventures In Theatre" classes as well as the ~starring~ role of Edmund in a children's theatre production of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe under his belt. It seemed the Fates had chosen for him. After performing all throughout high school, Philip went to Wright State University to pursue a BFA in Musical Theatre. In addition to refining his skills as a performer at school and through working regionally, Philip developed a passion for playwriting and was able to workshop his original play, HUSTLE. After graduation, Philip toured the US and Asia with the hit Broadway musical Kinky Boots! Having just moved to New York, he is pounding the pavement and chasing his Broadway dreams! BUT, if an overdue Hogwarts letter arrives..... Well, you know where he'll be.
