“The reason I believe in LifeScore goes far beyond the vision alone (to be sure, it is a bold, disruptive idea!). It comes down to people. Philip and his team are not only highly skilled, they are a joy to work with. Whether leading an ensemble of musicians or an ensemble of engineers, designers, and business partners, Phillip is masterful in how he brings people together to achieve great things.”
