Phillip was born and raised in the small town of Newkirk, OK, and graduated college from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences. With over 15 years of professional experience, Phillip spent his first years out of college as a Project Analyst over retail gas stations with the State of Oklahoma. Then he moved to Southern California to enjoy the waves and sunshine while working on the Shell Oil contract for retail gas stations as a Field Supervisor, Project Coordinator, and Project Manager. After 4 years of traffic jams and missing the weather seasons (in what he refers to as groundhog day) he moved back to Oklahoma. Once back he started his own construction and remodeling company, but an opportunity arose to join a great team at the Rupe Helmer Group that he just couldn’t turn down for his love of project oversight and construction!
In his spare time, Phillip enjoys tournament bass fishing, golfing, gardening, traveling, and wood working projects.
