My boy Phil is a gentle giant, a talented (and successful!) artist & a great role model. Phil is from the Ts’msyen and Cree First Nations of Lax Kw’Alaams, BC and Fort Chipewyan, AB. His work has been recognized in various books, galleries & museums around the world including the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Arts Continuum and he gained recognition for his work in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Phil received the 2014 BC Creative Achievement Award for First Nations Art and in 2012 received the Charles Pachter Prize for Emerging Artists. On top of all that awesomeness Phil is a well respected & loved member of the team, always giving this 100% best and always works to support the rest of us. Oh yeah, he also hits like a truck but moves like a lightweight & can likely smash skulls with his strikes. Phil, you are the ART in the Martial Arts!
