Born in the Lubao province of Pampanga, Philippines, Phil moved to the U.S. with his mother and four siblings in 1985. At the age of 16, he was introduced to the world of performing arts studied in Los Angeles under Mr. Joe Tremaine, and in Chicago under Mr. Frank Hachette and Mr. Charles Kelly.

Phil performed as a singer, actor, and dancer in the Broadway musicals “The Phantom”, “Grease”, “Hello Dolly”, “George M”, and “Anything Goes”. Phil also gained experienced training under the tutelage of Bob Fosse. He has traveled all over the world performing as a MC and singer/dancer on Norwegian, Holland America, and Costa Cruise Lines.
