Phong studied biology at the University of California in Santa Barbara. He spent 10 years in the biotech industry before he felt ready for a career change. When he saw an interesting opening with HP, Phong decided to go for it, quickly climbing the company ladder after officially joining the team.
Phong’s days can differ drastically depending on what project he’s working on and with which location. Some days he stays in the office for 12 hours or more, and some days he’s home by early afternoon. Phong liaises with company counterparts in Europe and Asia to manage program production all around the world.
