    HELLO. MY NAME IS VINNY NGOC

    I'm a Designer/Developer located in Chelmsford, Massachusetts

A little background is in order.

I'm Vinny Ngoc, a user-experience designer and software engineer. I currently work for Imprivata as a Senior Software Engineer and I work freelance as DuplexLabs. I love building stuff and learning ways to make them even better. I like a challenge. Show me the impossible and I will show you the solution.

I live in the historic city of Chelmsford in the great state of Massachusetts. I'm a husband and a dad, two other roles I do quite well if I say so myself. I like playing sports, cheering on Boston teams, playing video games, and watching a ton of movies.
