Significant Professional or Academic Accomplishments:
While SUNY College Old Westbury graduate, Deon Lee, spends
most of his time configuring and installing software at Brookhaven
National Laboratory, in his personal life, his passion is
drawing. Lee loves art and painting, but he knew that a career
in computer science would be more realistic. He pursued a
degree in computer science with a minor in visual arts. Lee
was hired part-time as a student assistant to work in BNL’s
Information Technology Division through CSTEP / AMP. After
graduating with a B.S. in computer science, Lee was hired
as a customer support analyst on a one-year professional associate
internship in the Internet Technology Division.
Now, in addition to his work in the Information Technology
Division at BNL, Lee also does freelance graphics designing
and website development.
“I feel lucky that I can incorporate my love of art
with my interest in computing,” says Lee.
