As founder and chief experience designer of GenesisXD Inc., Philip connects the dots between brand, experience design and technology. Prior to running his own business with a focus on branding and marketing communications over 20 years ago, Philip had worked for award-winning studios as senior designer and design director. His strategic consultation has proven success in many turnkey initiatives for financial and educational institutions, health care organizations, and not-for-profits.

Philip has led the GenesisXD team to cofound social enterprises to employ persons with barriers to employment, including Red Propeller and KLINK® Coffee.

Integrating faith at work is Philip’s priority in his career decisions. While studying at Tyndale (formerly OTS) after OCAD U, it became clear that God called him to serve as a designer. Over the years Philip’s storytelling through creatives keeps evolving with his increasing engagement in social innovation and ministry.

To Philip, work is mission.
