Brett Peugh, Endpoint Services Specialist

Brett Peugh joined the iSchool on January 2 as an endpoint services specialist. He comes to the School from the Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning (CITL) on campus.  In his new position, Peugh will order, install, and provide second-level tech support for the laptops and desktops in the School.

While he worked in computer installation and repair at local computer stores for several years, Peugh, who holds a degree in K-12 art education and a certificate to teach English as a second language, has a range of experience beyond tech services.

"I have worked many jobs from making gourmet milkshakes at a 50's diner in Seattle to doing the typography on University textbooks to doing social services for the county," he said.

He applied for the endpoint services specialist opportunity in part because of the iSchool's strong reputation.

"I look forward to working with a variety of people and learning new ways to assist them in their computing needs," Peugh said.
