Philip Nguyen completed his bachelor’s at the University of Nevada, in Reno, but he went further afield to receive a master’s degree in Kwansei Gakuin University in Osaka, Japan. Both degrees were in business. However, Philip has always had a passion for computers, and it was while in Osaka he started coding for a startup. With great business acumen and terrific coding skills, we are lucky to have Philip back in Reno and now, a part of the Trinity Development team. Welcome, Philip!
Q. How did you decide to work for Trinity?
Trinity is more forward thinking than other software development companies in Reno, Nevada. I think Trinity is the only company using Ruby on Rails and not purely PHP in Reno!

Q. Where do you want to go on your next trip?
I’d like to visit Mont Saint Michel in France. It is a small island about 1/2 mile off the coast of Normandy that has a monastery that has been there since 8th century AD. It’s about 250 acres total and only 45 people live there. (Check out the photo, above.)
