Sean McDermid, Director of Applications and Digital/Web Development, is the newest member of the IT team. He joined the BVSD team a mere three months ago in August, but has spent more than 20 years in IT. Prior to joining us he led the web team for the College of Business at CSU.
Outside of work Sean enjoys spending time with his family, rock climbing, photography, and fishing. He also has a knack for building things with wood, concrete and steel. He has completed many projects including bunk beds and dressers for his two daughters, a dog house, wood turning tools, and bowls. He has the scars to prove it as well.
As a kid growing up in Calgary, Sean wanted to be a marine biologist but turned his mind to fine arts in college before landing on graphic design and technology after graduation. He now looks forward to solving problems, working with technology, and building websites. One of his favorite things about his new job is the opportunity to work with so many amazingly talented people to make a difference. As a life long learner, Sean’s oldest daughter recently taught him that black spaghetti is a thing. Squid ink is a key ingredient and it doesn’t taste half-bad.
If you are ever in the IT office, please stop by and introduce yourself to Sean and check out the amazing bowls he has made.
