Phil joined the High 5 team as a lead trainer in 2015. Originally from England, Phil first came to the US in 2008 working as an Outdoor Educator and Challenge Course Coordinator. His work in the realms of summer camp, outdoor education, and physical education gives him an invaluable perspective for working with High 5’s diverse customer base.
Following his passion for looking at the industry critically and helping to develop career paths for adventure educators, Phil created the podcast, Vertical Playpen, as a resource for both new and existing adventure practitioners. It currently reaches educators across the globe and continues to be a valuable tool in the training team’s toolkit.
