Phil grew up with a lot of religion, grew tired of it all and ran away from home when he was 15. He ended up in Vancouver, B.C. where after partying hard he had an encounter with God that transformed his life. It led to a life of adventure as he tries to keep up with following Jesus, and his awesome thriving marriage with wife Lorraine since 1977. Together they raised four children, all married now and they have six grandchildren.
Phil enjoys kayaking, camping, exploring, hiking, mountain-biking and hunting for fossils.
