Philip has grown up in and around Northland Hearing and the hearing industry. He was learning about audiograms, frequencies, decibel readings and hearing loss types before completing high school. His passion is the prevention of hearing loss at workplaces and in the noisy outdoor activities so common in Alaska. He has personal experience in how important this is: as a teenager, Philip went to a live local concert in Minneapolis without hearing protection “just one time”. This caused permanent high frequency tinnitus (ringing of the ears). The importance of hearing protection and the masking of ear ringing is something Philip feels very strongly about and has helped hundreds of people to realize for themselves.
“Ears and hearing are amazing and beautiful things. Working to assist the impressively complex sense of hearing to perform better, be protected and pay attention to verbal communication is something I want to do for the rest of my life. My resolve is to help as many people as I am able.”
