In 1999, Philip signed on as a trail crew leader for a conservation youth program and has worn countless hats in his outdoor career since. Recent positions were Director of Facilities for the American Alpine Club (AAC) and Director of Safety & Operations for the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC), two of the larger member-based outdoor non-profits in the country.
