This month, we get to know Matthew Shinault, Director of Integrated Systems and Engineering here at TEC Integration. Matthew has been with us for 5 years and is tasked with the engineering and design of projects and work to keep our integrated systems up to date with the newest product lines designed to fit our customers.
Prior to joining TEC, Matthew was an IT Intern for Woodward Governer, a Computer Science Intern for Agtown LLC, and a Fiber Install Tech. He credits his intern positions for giving him the skill set that he has today.
Matthew was born in Colorado but spent most of his childhood on the east coast in West Virginia and Kentucky. He has a 14-month-old son and says the best and happiest days of his life were his wedding day and the day his son was born. He also has an Alaskan Malamute and a cat, but they tend to respect each other’s space. Matthew is an avid technology enthusiast and enjoys playing computer games and tinkering with circuits and electronics, but also enjoys the outdoors, camping, and fishing.
The person Matthew admires the most is his father, who came out of a poor and drug-addicted family but was able to work hard to make sure his family was better off and provided for. In fact, Matthew’s favorite motto is, “The grass is green where you water it.” He believes you can make anything in your life work if you put the work and dedication into it.
Matthew’s favorite superhero is Spiderman because he always looks out for the little guy. He enjoys a good war movie, but his favorite is Dirty Dozen. He also likes any books that revolve around the sci-fi genre.
We are happy to have Matthew on the TEC team! 🙂
