Hi, I'm Phil

 

After more than 15 years of being online, and various incarnations of personal sites from school projects, to the always trusty "coming soon" page, I figured it was about time to have a proper personal website. So here it is, everything you ever wanted to know about me, Philip Miresco, but were afraid (or didn't care) to ask.

First rule: Don't call me Philip! I hate that. Even though it says my name is Philip Martin Miresco on my birth certificate (and any other official documentation), please call me Phil. I also go by "Phil M" in most of my online personas, or the ever popular "Philtastic!"

Most of the important bits are right here, but if you'd like an easy to use list of all my online sites and profiles, check out Phil.co, if for no other reason than it's a really awesome URL.

About Me

 

Born and raised in Montreal, there's nowhere else I'd rather call home. Well, except for maybe Stockholm, or Buenos Aires. Speaking of which, I do love to travel, and try to visit new places as much as possible. I recenlty did a grand tour of South America, and pretty much covered everything south of the equator, from The Galapagos to Cape Horn, Machu Picchu to Rio Carnival. It was pretty amazing. Eventually I may actually post the photos I took on that trip. But there's something like 8 or 9 THOUSAND pictures to sort through, so don't hold your breath.

But speaking of photography, you can check out PhilMPhoto.com for a sampling of my photos. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II, and an EF 50mm F/1.0 lens. Yes, that's right, F-Motherfucking-1-Point-0! One of my photos was even posted on Boing Boing! (I'm a little too proud of that...)

Also, I'm a little bit, what you might call, media addicted. It's not that I can't live without a computer, TV, or the Internet, except that is exactly what it is. Seriously, it's a bit of a problem, but at least I figured out how to make some money off it. Bet you didn't know you could deduct all your movie tickets and comic books from taxes. But you can!

Oh, and I'm building an electric motorcycle from an old 1973 Honda CB350G Super Sport. It's gonna be fucking cool. You can check that out at (soon) at RobotDevil.com

My Work

 

I guess I should talk a little bit about what I do for a living. It took me a while to realise it, but at my core, I'm an Entrepreneur. After five long years of building one of the top entertainment websites in the world, I opted to take the proverbial gold watch, and "retire." Turns out retirement is pretty boring. At least it is when you're 30. Let's just say I took a much needed break, but now I'm back to work, and getting ready to launch a brand new startup. I'm really excited about this new project, so stay tuned as you'll be hearing a lot more about that one real soon...
