Team Player Matt

 

Matt Bernath

President

For as long as I can remember I have had a fascination with technology, always taking things apart to figure out how they work, and making things work better or different along the way. My first technology job was in 1997 as a car audio installation tech for Circuit City, rising quickly through their ranks I got to experience the business side of technology as well. Since then I have worked with the most advanced car and home technologies in various capacities, currently maintaining a few CEDIA certifications along with numerous manufacturer certifications. I am proud that Surreal Systems is a reflection of our experience and knowledge gained from hundreds of successful projects over the years, and the contributions of many team members.

I have a passion for great sound and picture, and simplicity through thoughtful control system design. On my time away from work I enjoy cars and motorcycles, and nearly anything with horsepower and shiny parts!

Surreal Systems is a team of dedicated individuals who actively make decisions in the best interest of our clients, to ensure projects are delivered beyond expectations and without compromise. Our team of professionals is what allows us to take a stack of disparate equipment, and cleverly integrate these parts into a cohesive system that blends well into a space and performs even better.

I appreciate the scores of clients and partners who have recommended Surreal Systems to their friends, family, and colleagues over the years.

Team Player Mark

 

Mark Levitt

VP of Sales and Marketing

I have been in the technology industry for 20 years and have had the pleasure of working in a number diverse companies and verticals. I started out in the Telecommunication sector as a Light Wave Test Engineer with MCI & WorldCom and continued on as contractor and consultant working with most of the major Telecom Providers in North & South America, Mexico and the Caribbean. For the last ten years I have spent the majority of my time working with small, medium and large companies to build new divisions and develop high performing technical teams. I have served as Branch Manager, Regional/Area Manager, National Account Manager and as an interim COO. I started with Surreal Systems in 2015 as a consultant and I was so impressed with Matt and his team I had to become a permanent member of the team and signed on as the VP of Sales & Marketing

My passions are driven by anything that has wheels and anything I can build with my own two hands. I have had a wrench, saw, and hammer in my hand for as long as I can remember and I would rather build it than buy it. I also have a deep passion for music and guitars.

Surreal Systems is a company that is firmly founded on achieving exceptional customer experiences. The solutions that we engineer and provide are never cookie cutter and are designed for each individual customer. Our core values are not just words on a piece of paper we live them and they influence every action, decision and project we do. To us there is only one way of doing things and that is The Surreal Systems Way of doing things.

We would not be the company we are today without the clients, partners, staff and family members we have. Thank you to all of you for your support, dedication and business.

Eddie Figlioli

Solutions Engineer

With 20 years’ experience in retail and custom system integration for residential and commercial projects. I design and implement solution-based systems focused on project needs. I have earned a computer science degree from The University of Devry in 2000. Continuing my computer education, I gained my A+ certification in 2009.

Audio/Video and computers have been a part of my life for many years and it is my passion. Working in the music industry has as inspired me to design sound systems based on individual needs with amazing sonic results. I love spending time with my family and friends. I have a passion for playing live music as a singer and guitar player with my band. I have a new found interest in cross-fit exercising to keep me in-shape, and also the amazing sport of golf. Technology today is about integrating with smart devices controlling our world. Surreal Systems will provide you the solutions in today's high-tech lifestyle that make your world a little easier

Thank you to all of our amazing clients for their business and referrals without you we would not be here.

Team Player Carrie

 

Carrie White

Manager of Positive Impressions/Den Mother

Administrative tasks have always been part of my life, it just comes with the territory when you have a family. Make it a large family (5 kiddos), and homeschooling (20 years), and and a husband who traveled 90% of the time and you have to be able to organize and execute or the place falls to pieces. Comparatively, my job a Surreal Systems is a piece of cake.

Your Passions: Family is number one, but a close second is animals. We currently have a foster failure, (that's what you call a foster animal that you decide to keep for yourself), a 5 or 6 year-old Chocolate Lab named Piper, who is a trained therapy dog and sometimes comes to work with me to hang out.

Why Choose Surreal: We do right by our customers, vendors, partners and team. I wouldn't work here otherwise.

A personal thank you: Thank you to Matt for taking a chance seven years ago and hiring me after being out of the work-for-pay workforce for 20 years. Remember when you asked if I would be working at least a year?

Team Player Tyler

 

Tyler Douglas

Lead Technician

I have been in this industry for over 6 years and have learned a lot in the process. I enjoy watching technology change and get excited to see how it can enhance people’s lives by providing entertainment and creating conveniences they never knew were possible.

I enjoy watching and playing all kinds of sports. I love to be a part of or watch a good competition of any sort. I cherish my time with the people I love and will take any chance to spend time doing almost anything with them. I am also always interested in learning or trying something new.

What I love about Surreal Systems over other companies that I have had experience with is the integrity of the people who make up the company. Doing right by our customers is something all of us take very seriously. I love that we don’t back down from challenges, run from problems, or put our own financial goals above what is right for our clients.

Thanks to all of our ecstatic customers that have recommended us to their closest friends and family and helped us to become what we are today!

Team Player Amos

 

Amos Cook

Lead Technician

I started in this industry back in 2004. I have done just about every type of install, from cable and phones to Atmos surround and 4K. There has been only one true constant, we will never stop learning or growing. I will continue to utilize all the training and certifications I have acquired, along with the experience of years in the field, to bring these amazing technologies into people's lives.

When I am not working I am spending time with my family, playing games with the kids, tinkering on projects around home and playing guitar and bass.

Today's technologies are yesterday's what if... I like asking the what ifs and seeing what can come from them.

There have been so many great memories and experiences with Surreal Systems clients and coworkers. I feel truly lucky to have had the pleasure of working on such amazing projects, and having a job where I am excited to go to work each day. Thank you!

Team Player Rojelio

 

Rojelio Valdivia

Technician

I have been installing A/V solutions since January of 2015, but working at Surreal Systems I feel that my knowledge is much greater than that. Prior to that, I installed car audio for seven years. Bringing my experience from the car audio world made it easier to understand some of the foundation of A/V. I always look forward to making someone else’s A/V experience amazing and stress free in their home or business.

I love spending time with my family, especially with my wife and son. We like going to the park, family parties, or just having a BBQ at home. When I’m not with my wife and son, I am hanging out with friends watching sports, listening to music and shooting some pool.

Working at Surreal Systems has shown me the potential that homes can have with technology and how to make a great house into an amazing. The best reason why I choose Surreal Systems is because I work with a great group of people that have qualities that I’ve never come across before. We work together as coworkers, friends, and even family.

Thank you to all of our clients for your loyalty and and support.

Matt Fitzwater

Technician

I have played many roles in the low voltage industry. I have been on the ground installing cable lines through underground conduit and I have been 400ft in the air installing cell phone antennas on a tower. I started installing cable right after I got out of the Marine Corps 12 years ago and have been in the industry ever since then. I continued down that path with Surreal Systems and learn something new every day.

I have a passion for being on my Harley Davidson with a tent strapped to the back. I enjoy the open road, camping, fishing, meeting new people and telling stories by a camp fire.

Surreal Systems takes the time to invest in training and the morality of its employees to ensure every job and customer experience is an exceptional one. We come equipped with the attitude and the training to serve the customer with top shelf service.

I’d like to thank my teammates around me, because of them I am learning new tricks of the trade every day. They are furthering my Audio/Video education, which allows me to deliver great service to our customers.
