St. Louis Audiovisual Engineer
Michael Floyd joined our audiovisual team in 2022 as a programming engineer. He is responsible for writing the code that ensures our AV systems are communicating and function appropriately at the end of a project.
Michael has been a technical problem-solver his whole life. One could say he started his career as a child when he would disassemble his remote-control cars just to repair them. The evolution of his career has taken him from repairing toy cars, to installing car stereos and home AV systems, to bringing nationwide system deploys across the finish line.
Of course, Michael is more than just an engineer, which is why we sat him down for a short interview so we could get to know him on a more personal level. Enjoy
Getting To Know Michael Floyd
What is your role at TSI?
I am a programming engineer. Most of the time my focus is spent on making sure the end result works exactly how the client expected.
What encouraged you to work at TSI?
I was at a point in my life where I wanted to grow as a professional. I’ve been in the residential AV industry since I was 21 years old and wanted the opportunity to work with more complex systems. The last company I worked with wasn’t quite big enough for the programming I was interested in. That’s when I found TSI and got my foot in the door within the commercial sector.
What is an interesting fact most people don’t know about you?
I am married to a twin, and together we also have a set of twins.
Pepsi or Coke?
What motivates you at work?
Success I suppose. I like seeing final product working as intended. It’s neat to take an idea, write a code for it, and witness it perform at the end of the day.
What do you plan on accomplishing in the 3 months?
Crestron Programmer Certification
What is your favorite sport?
Blues fan through and through.
If you could have a drink with one cartoon character, who would it be?
How did you get into the audiovisual industry?
I used to disassemble my remote-control cars just to repair them again when I was a child. That’s when I knew I wanted to do something with electronics. My first paid job was installing car stereos until moving full time into home AV.
What is your favorite movie?
Fight Club… (We both agreed we shouldn’t talk about it)
