Phil previously worked as a business consultant, in the IT security professional certification area, and in sales and marketing. During this time, aquaria were his hobby. One day, he decided to enter the industry professionally.
Phil has planned, installed, maintained, and managed several hundred aquaria and tens of thousands of gallons of saltwater in the greater DC area. He founded Reef eScape in 2006. He planned, built, and moved into their current home (the Fairfax City 2,000 square ft showroom and aquarium design center) in 2009-2010.
A constant diet of ponds, lobster tanks, freshwater tanks, multi-tank systems, live coral reef tanks, QT systems, large tank design, and installation, and running a small business more keep him pretty busy.
With the help and support of his wife Lucia and their two kids, Phil is proud to have built Reef eScape into the company know to be the D.C. area's premier aquatic services provider with the most professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated staff.
