Senior Systems Specialist
Since 2019, Kevin has been an outstanding member of our team. He is native born Texan that began his life in Houston but spent his childhood in various parts of the state including Beaumont/Port Arthur and Dallas/Fort Worth urban areas. From the beginning of his working days, Kevin has always had a technical mindset. He began his career installing car stereos for friends after school. Upon graduating from High school in 2001, Kevin moved to Austin to pursue a degree from ITT Technical Institute. He attained his Associates Degree in Computer and Electronics Engineering at night while maintaining a steady workflow during the day. Kevin worked for a two-way radio shop where he would install radios, strobes, sirens, and other emergency vehicle equipment on local and federal law enforcement vehicles. He gained experience troubleshooting electronics and learned all about relay logic. Ready to expand his knowledge and career path, Kevin began working for a sheet metal fab shop as their Office/ Shop Manager and learned how to write CAD/CAM Programs; another skill benefiting him to this day. After this Kevin moved to Seattle, Washington to attend the University of Washington’s Computer Engineering Program.
During the program, Kevin worked for Optimum Energy writing Chiller and HVAC Optimization software for facilities greater than 100 thousand square feet. He developed and tested appliances for the facilities then would spend a week on site commissioning the software and give owner/end-user training. Since his return to Austin in 2009, Kevin has helped a local HVAC company startup their controls department, trained employees with another local distributer, and then worked as Sr. Technician for a larger controls company for 6 years. In 2019 Kevin joined our team as one of our Senior Systems Specialists. He came on board with the knowledge and experience of a well-seasoned vet. Kevin has experience and is capable of servicing Niagara, Distech, Honeywell, Novar, TAC, Alerton, Solidyne, Loytec, InetSupervisor, and HMI products. In addition, his personality is just awesome. Kevin is a jolly team player, husband, and dad. In his free time, Kevin enjoys being outside. He likes to ride his motorcycle, go swimming and hiking/camping. We consider ourselves blessed to have him on our team.
