About Me

Philip Roop

I was raised and educated in the Midwest, but now call Portland, Oregon my home. I have brought to Portland my midwestern work ethic, endless creativity, and penchant for clever banter. When at home, I am fond of design, illustration, science documentaries and playing my acoustic guitar.
