By day, Phil is an account planner in a New York advertising agency, and by night a visual artist and urban explorer, looking to recover the meaning of abandoned places before it’s lost forever. Phil has been to 15 TED Conferences, beginning in 1995 and he thought it was about time he helped organize one. He was the executive producer of the original TED Talks that were released on a triple-CD, the first project he worked on with Reven Wurman. His book on Woody Guthrie's life at Greystone Park PSychiatric Hospital will be released in early 2013. modern-ruins.com

I made my first pinhole camera when I was 8 and fell in love with photography. So, inevitably I moved to downtown New York City and I have been shooting here ever since. I have been lucky enough to have extraordinarily varied experiences, to work with diverse people and in many fields. This is not my first foray into the conference arena, I produced the original TED Conference for 15 years, and I am excited to be back on board. wurmandesigns.com
