Brendan's Notes

As the digital communications coordinator, I managed soft IT concerns, maintained the existing LAN, and oversaw most of the workstations and software. In addition, I put together a multi-year plan for replacing all systems and kept things up to date with new software & hardware research.

On the website, I used Craft CMS and framework design via Bootstrap, HTML, CSS, Twig, and custom coding. Additionally, I managed the school's photo database, including capturing new images and editing/publishing existing ones.

When the school was remote, I produced several split-screen virtual videos featuring students, staff, and faculty.
