Philip is the Orchestra Director at Oakland Mills High School here in Columbia; he is also a graduate of the Peabody Institute, where he earned degrees in Music Education and Violin Performance. He is married to Katie, a voiceover artist, actor, and singer.
They are the proud parents of three sons.
When Philip and his family moved to Columbia from southeast Baltimore County in the winter of 2010, they knew that they had been called to serve the Columbia and Oakland Mills community. Although still employed as the Director of Music at a church in Bowie, Maryland, Philip knew the time would come when that calling would draw to a close and a new chapter would begin. Little did he know that answering a call for a violinist for a Christmas program at Bethany Lane Baptist Church would lead him to this new calling. Philip and Katie plan to worship and serve God with their hearts, minds, and strength, bringing the light of Christ to this community.
