Phil Tomlinson LEED AP BD+C

To Phil, community means identity. Every community has its own style, and it’s the designer’s job to express that style and identity to make a community feel like a space belongs to them.

  • I’m from  Randolph, MA.

  • My education  M.Arch, Wentworth Institute of Technology

  • Why PCA?  PCA's culture and people is what really drew me in. The amount of activities and events the people of PCA do together creates and enforces such a strong bond that directly translates to the project teams.

  • My favorite aspect of working with clients is  getting to know them as people — their wants/needs and ultimately what will help them be their best selves.

  • The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time is  organize...EVERYTHING...I put my pens and highlighters in a row on my desk by color.

  • When I’m not working you can find me  dancing, choreographing, riding my motorcylce or bike, working out, volunteering, performing, DJing, cooking or working on my car.

  • Coffee or tea?  Iced tea

  • Quote that guides me right now  "Do less, accomplish more." ~ Buddhist proverb

  • If I could snap my fingers and become an expert in something, it would be  cooking — I'm pretty good, but not an expert.

  • The craziest thing I’ve ever done is  skydive.

  • One thing most people don’t know about me  I still have a baby tooth.

  • The best piece of advice I've ever been given  You are where you need to be in life; stop trying to get ahead of it.

  • A volunteering cause I support  Black Lives Matter
