Technical Architect

**Philip is a program­mer who has gotten to rub profes­sional elbows with some of the world’s largest brands and tech compa­nies, includ­ing Coca-Cola, Chick-fil‑a, Face­book, and Spotify, design­ing and imple­ment­ing end-to-end solu­tions to complex tech­ni­cal prob­lems. He began his career as a recently-grad­u­ated student of Philos­o­phy whose love for chal­leng­ing ideas and well-crafted words soon trans­lated itself into a passion for appli­ca­tion archi­tec­ture and design patterns. Clas­si­cal Philos­o­phy, meet Clas­si­cal Inher­i­tance.

Before joining Search Discovery, Philip spent several years in Atlanta’s adver­tis­ing scene, helping compa­nies in an indus­try still working through its tech­no­log­i­cal growing pains lever­age the latest tech to build inno­v­a­tive web apps and social inte­gra­tion plat­forms.

Philip has culti­vated a passion for research­ing and discov­er­ing the best prac­tices and best solu­tions for prob­lems old and new, and believes deeply that the best part of profes­sional soft­ware devel­op­ment is the inter­minable neces­sity of contin­ual learn­ing.

About Me

I live in a 100 year old bunga­low on the East­side with my beau­ti­ful wife and a Welsh Terrier named Lola. I spend my free time trying to fix my house, reading books, and playing music–each with varying degrees of success. Atlanta has been my home for over a decade, and I love the city’s neigh­bor­hoods, restau­rants, tree canopy, and foot­ball team.
