Phil has an educational background in both mechanical engineering and business.  He has previously worked in the corporate world for several large manufacturing facilities eventually moving into the energy sector.  Soon after, Phil took the leap into the entrepreneurial world and started his own Energy Consulting Company.  Phillip hopes to continue to pursue his passion for business, digital media, and entrepreneurship by building his business.

Why Digital Media?

Phil wanted to combine his passion for entrepreneurship with digital media. Ryerson’s Masters in Digital Media program was a perfect combination of both. He hopes to broaden his scope of the continuously evolving digital technology realm. Moving forward, Phil hopes to learn as much he can about Digital Media andincorporate his learnings with new and innovative business ideas.

Final Project

Phil is working with classmates Chris, Tyler, and Rhandy to develop Materialyze. Based in Toronto, this startup emerged out of the MDM program. Operating within the 3D-printing industry, Materialyze provides an online platform for the sale, purchase, and digital rights management protection of 3D designs. The site allows designers to upload, categorize, and price their designs for purchase by users who can print on multiple types of 3D printers.
