About Dave

I bring over 18 years of lighting background and experiences to my craft and profession.

Lighting design is incredibly exciting and challenging as it allows me to utilize both sides of my thought processes as lighting design is comprised of both technical and aesthetic aspects. Both of these aspects need to not only be met, but exist in harmony for any space to reach its full potential. I also work with the understanding of that. My lighting design also takes into account that lighting effects us psychologically by impacting mood and overall feeling, and physiologically as well by impacting our bodies and how we function.

My challenge and passion is to fully integrate the lighting in any environment and space. I do this by exploring and getting to know that environment and how it is intended to be used and by my studying the architecture, the design, the use of the space, and its occupants. Often times it is a series of discussions and exploratory conversations in order for me to understand the environments design, both realized and implied, and with the end users of the space to understand their intended wants and desires of the space
