Phil’s fascination with everything high voltage began early in his life. He started apprenticing at his father’s electrical contracting company while he was in junior high school. After studying electrical engineering at the University of Portland, Phil returned to Maui and obtained his electrical contractor’s license. While wiring some of the finest homes on Maui with power, Phil realized that he could provide his clients with yet another kind of power: user-friendly home electronics. Phil started Pacific Audio & Communications in 1991, helping homeowners achieve their goal of integrated home control and entertainment systems
