Phi Restaurant Consultancy helps small culinary businesses thrive! Through design, strategy and over 17 years of culinary expertise, we help shape ideas into futures.



I was born number five of 11, in Dayton, Ohio, to hard work, humble beginnings and diversity of thought. My next eldest brother is a bit of an idiot savant. He learned to tie his shoes at 14 years old, but sold his first patent to a major American auto company by 16. It was an engine that used no gas, but compressed air instead. What that meant for me was that I knew what patents and 'living in R&D forever' meant by the time I was 10 years old. I've been exposed to product design all my life.

These days, I'm a product designer who works diligently to take current technology, modern critical thinking and plain ol' human curiosity of the self to push the boundaries of how we define the space between us and the phenomenons our bodies process for us non-stop.

Creating the new field of practical phenomenology calibrated to the next steps of the education and wellness industries, I want to give people the knowledge and tools to control their own physical state and increase the impact they can make on their own quality of life.
