Phil was born in La Paz, Bolivia and has always had an interest in expressing himself physically and the performance arts. Phil started physical training in Gymnastics from age 4-13, then did some skateboarding and snowboarding where he had an encounter with life! He was introduced to dance at age 18 and he studied at The London Contemporary Dance School where he met Hofesh Shechter. During his final year of study, he toured various shows with the Hofesh Shechter Company and continued on for 10 years. In 2016 he went freelance and has been ever since. He is doing work as a creature performer (gorilla puppet suits, performance capture) and movement teaching. He still dances professionally sometimes and trains physically as well as practices mind body & spirit connection.
