Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) has hired two new
information technology specialists: Albert Agazaryan as Webmaster I and
Art Peshkam as Director of Network Operations.
Agazaryan, a Glendale resident, has experience as an animator for Bonk
Pictures in Hollywood, a Website developer for Noble Technologies in
Glendale, and a computer artist for Electric Filmworks in Glendale. He has
a bachelor of fine arts degree from the California Institute of the Arts,
and is also skilled in a wide range of mediums in fine arts, analog to
digital technology, computer graphics and animation. At a young age he
developed a fascination with art and translating abstract images from his
mind to paper.
“”The most complex and challenging tool I could find was the computer, and
the world that it is capable of creating,”” Agazaryan said.
Peshkam comes to WesternU from Cabletron Systems, where he spent three
years as a networking engineer responsible for most of the company’s
Fortune 500 customers on the West Coast. The Diamond Bar resident is no
stranger to WesternU; he worked in the University’s business department
for several years and actually founded the school’s management information
systems department. He has a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Cal
“”There is a cultural renaissance at WesternU, and major plans to take the
University’s digital learning infrastructure into the next millenium,””
Peshkam said. “”I think the expertise I acquired with the Cabletron
company, which is an innovator in the industry, will enable me to play a
major role in this endeavor.””
