Sawyer Coordinator

Member Since 2023 – Phillip has been involved with disaster relief operations for many years and came into contact with MDR while serving those in need.  After being impressed by the organizations structure and training, he joined the team and quickly became a regular volunteer on the team.


I love helping people, but my true passion is teaching and increasing capability in others. Helping inexperienced sawyers become faster and more efficient has been very rewarding.

Phillip is an Afgahanistan army combat veteran, former school teacher, and contractor. His girlfiend, also an MDR Member, and him split their time between their home in Louisiana and their home in Puerto Rico where they build response capabilites and oppurtunities.
