Meet Philip Viray, Publications Chief
NPS, Denver Service Center

What experience and education do you have? I have a bachelor's degree in Digital Media studies and a master's degree in Business Administration in Marketing. Prior to my work at NPS, I worked at another federal agency, the U.S. General Services Administration’s Office of Communications and Marketing for almost five years. Before my federal career, I worked in the private sector in financial and collegiate athletics and recreation industries. Those positions were generally working with smaller marketing teams where I was responsible for many different tasks and projects throughout the year.

What is a typical day like? Fast paced! I’m well versed in the art of juggling many projects at various stages of our business. They range from multi-year projects to one-time special projects.

What career advice would you give to someone who wants to follow a similar path? Be open to learning and trying different things. Be flexible too, things have way of changing quickly!

What do you really enjoy about your job/NPS? The NPS mission is something I can really support. It’s one that is tangible for all Americans.
