I am a Front End Software Engineer with over 10 years of experience at various tech companies, currently based in Toronto, Canada.

I am currently working at Square and was previously at Coinbase, Taplytics. I also have previously mentored at Lighthouse Labs: Canada's Leading Coding Bootcamp.

I have professional, hands-on experience mentoring multiple software engineers from interns, to intermediate to senior level, including building a mentorship program.

I have worked on multiple varieties of projects and products. These projects include leading and launching products from 0-1 to beta and full public access released to 2 million+ users. I have experience with front end architecture, improving the performance of a web application, scalability, and reliability, along with improving the efficiency and velocity of a team.

I started my career at an advertising agency, and from there I worked at a consultancy, and then multiple startup product companies before transitioning into larger tech companies. In my free time, I like playing video games, working out, reading, climbing, golfing, and jamming on my guitar.

As a mentor, I can help you:
- Attain proficiency in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, and React
- Enhance your resume and make it stand out
- Progress in your present job and construct a personal growth strategy
- Transition your career to software engineering
- Navigate the complexities of the tech industry, including understanding company hierarchies, promotion criteria, and strategies for long-term career success
- Prepare for technical screenings, pair programming, and system design interviews
- Improve mastery by code reviewing and working through current projects or take-home assignments
- Create an impressive portfolio with coding expertise through coding projects

Feel free to apply to one of the plans or book a session to get started.

Phong helped revise my resume, clarified the doubts I had about the industry, and gave me some great resources/pointers to help with my interview study plan. I feel much more confident in my job search now.

I had a good conversation with Phong discussing the current job market and the viability of me moving forward at this point in my career. He offered some helpful advice and encouragement based on where things stand, and after the session he sent me several helpful links to work on my foundational React skills.
