Phil Milliman Bio

This is me, Phil Milliman 

Yes, this is the real Phil Milliman 

About me

I have several interests on the web and hope to pursue them over time.  I recently retired from Weyerhaeuser Company after 30 years.  I currently live in Sequim and enjoy sports such as pole vaulting, pickleball, and volleyball as well as all sorts of nature sports such as hiking and skiing.  I like taking pictures of what’s around me and there is plenty up here in the Northwest. 

Pole Vaulting

Here’s me pole vaulting 11 feet a couple of years ago.  I’m currently practicing in our home pole vaulting pit with my dad while helping with church organization and working on designing and selling pole vault souveniers. I recently came in first in the nation in the National Senior Games in the pole vault at Houston with a vault of 11-7 in the 60-64 age group and my dad came in third with a vault of 7′ 1/2″ (I think the oldest in his group). He came in first in the Stanford Senior Games in 2009. My vault was a breakout height for me and it is a trial to regain the height, but I’m working on more core body strength.
My products can be found on and a local artist, Paul Labrie creates the excellent glass work.

Example photograph

We  traveled to the Arctic Circle in Alaska in 2004.  I was highly motivated to take successive shots of the midnight sun, so I took a picture every 10 minutes all night long and assembled the following composite photo.  As you can see, there were some clouds to make it interesting.  However, if you check the times and follow the lines you will agree with me that the sun stayed above the horizon the whole time.
