MY NAME IS PHILIPPE

 
ABOUT.png

I am a writer and speaker who tells stories that encourage spreading joy and pursuing justice. I'm an advocate for the rural poor with the organization Plant With Purpose and I've previously worked with institutionalized children in urban South Africa and refugees escaping North Korea. I love to travel, but my favorite place is at home in San Diego with my wife Deanna, and our puppy, Beignet.

 

OUR WORLD NEEDS MORE JOY

 

Think of the most joyful people you know. Picture their faces in your head. Their infectious joy. Their genuine joy. Their generous joy.

Got it? Good. Now, imagine how radically different the world would be with more people like that. Pretty wild, huh?

That's the world I want to live in, and I think it isn't too crazy. Joy is a contagious thing when it's genuine, and I want to be in the business of spreading it.

 

HERE'S HOW:

 

ADVOCACY

As a creative storyteller for
Plant With Purpose, I help tell stories of how the rural poor can overcome poverty and inspire people across the country to invest in the world they wish to live in.

WRITING

I love to write and my work has been featured in Relevant Magazine, Conscious Magazine, Converge, and Good Men Project. My book If Not For Second Chances explores grace and forgiveness and can be found on Amazon.

 

STORYTELLING

I have helped a number of nonprofits, businesses, and brands tell their stories and more effectively serve people. Past collaborators include Restavek Freedom, Liberty in North Korea, and Eugene City Club. 

PODCASTING

I am the former co-host of the podcast Pints & Mics and am currently in the process of planning a new series, inspired by the most joyful, generous people I know and a desire for there to be more of those kinds of people in the world.
