Philip has over 10 years of experience as an actuarial consultant for The Scruggs Group based out of Argyle, Texas.
He works on and manages a wide variety of projects ranging from mortgage insurance and workers' compensation analysis to projecting manufacturing labor requirements over a mid-term horizon. Along the way, he has acquired vast sums of knowledge about Excel, nearly a dozen different programming languages from VBA and C# to R and MATLAB scripts, and an expanse of experience mixing and matching tools to get the job done right. In addition to his consulting, we are lucky enough to have him as an instructor to discuss topics surrounding Excel and business analysis.
Beyond his achievements in the office, Philip has succeeded as a competitor in the annual ModelOff Financial World Championships. He was ranked as one of the top 50 Financial Modelers in the world following his performances in 2013 and 2014; however, he fell off the list in 2015. In 2016, Philip turned the dial up to 11 and finished in the top 20 overall and traveled to London to compete for the championship as one of four US-based competitors and re-emerged as number 23 on the Top 50.
Born and raised in Arlington Texas, Philip is a huge baseball fan and regularly roots for the hometown Texas Rangers. He attended Boston University from 2003-2006 and graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Economics and a Master of Arts in Economics. His studies focused heavily on quantitative analysis ranging from general math studies such as differential equations and linear algebra into the more applied domains of econometrics, operations research, and game theory.
