This month, we get to know Matt Downing, a lead technician here at TEC Integration. Matt has been with us for 4.5 months, and loves the fact that he gets to work with people that care about the work they do, but also care about each other. He overseas the installation of cable and equipment with the goal of creating a cohesive network for the customer. The best part of his job is getting to see a new trainee begin to understand a whole project as it comes together.
Matt is originally from West Palm Beach, FL and moved to Denver when he was 4 years old, and hasn’t left since. Him and his wife have a black lab named Padfoot, an Australian Shepherd named Loki, and a Taby named Gecko. Matt is happiest when he is with his wife and kids.The person he most admires is his wife, who was willing to sacrifice her own life to save that of their child’s. Their daughter Piper was born 12 weeks premature with a very rare condition called CLOVES Syndrome.
Prior to joining TEC, Matt has worked at several jobs in the same field. When he was a kid, his dad would sit him and his brother on the couch and terminate RJ45’s on patch cords $0.10 a piece. So it’s safe to say he has been interested in cabling ever since he was a child!
Matt’s favorite book is Ready Player One, and his favorite movie is Lord of the Rings. His life motto is, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”
We’re happy to have Matt a part of the TEC team!
