Phil Jacques

Better know as Man Tricks, Phil Jacques is nothing but balls to the wall.

It is all or nothing for Phil, always locking in on any rail perfectly centered no matter how big or small. With stand out parts in Captia’s “Defenders of Awesome” and Déjà Vu, Phil has placed himself on the map as a Canadian beast.
