Phil’s Bio

I am finally at a point in my career that in addition to my professional role, as a teacher of philanthropy, I can do whatever I wish on my passion projects. This is the site where I do that.

My professional bio is below. All I sell here are courses. And for the time being they are offered “invitation only.”
