Phil has just finished a non-fiction book called Damage Control; a motivational book for any survivor of brain injury.
Previously, he parlayed his advertising expertise into a business manuscript called Never Let em’ See You Sweat.
He has written two novels—a murder-mystery set in New York’s advertising industry. And, Voices, which explores the cultural dissonance between old and new Hawaii. Phil has also written numerous essays, business commentaries, and a series of short stories. His current project is a series of essays called, Fight’n Words.
His twenty-six year career in advertising (New York, London and Los Angeles) culminated in becoming the Chairman of two Omnicom agencies.
His most famous advertising lines are:
“Never let ‘em see you sweat.” (Gillette’s Dry Idea)
“It’s not just a job, it’s an adventure.” (US Navy)
Outdoor training attracted he and his wife, Mary, to Hawaii. Surfing and outrigger paddling have kept them in the islands where they continue to write and paint.
