About

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 mentor 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

Phong has been amazing so far!!! I graduated with my CS degree in the fall but have been having trouble getting interviews. The first thing Phong really helped me with was improving my resume. Then he gave me practical advice on how to setup a nice portfolio site quickly, and now we are working on a bigger project to help improve my porfolio. He has provided useful feedback at every step along the way, and is very responsive over chat when I have questions! Still job hunting after a few weeks (Feb 2023), but I actually got an interview this month, and just heard back from a second company about a potential interview. Pretty great results considering the current job market! Would definitley reccomend Phong 100%!!
