The art of light.

“Alongside my professional duty as a lighting designer, I am responsible for running the day-to-day project activities of the London Lighting Design team.

In the past decade I have been all over the world, including South America, Europe and the Middle East.

I enjoy talking about lighting and I participate as a speaker for industry events nationally and internationally, as well as for institutions such as CIBSE, SLL and RADA.

Nevertheless, what I enjoy the most about lighting is always the same: its very essence, its playful nature, and its intrinsic psychology that allows every one of us to perceive the world around us.”
