I started as a stage-hand at age 13, setting up lighting rigs for events and festivals, which got me interested in operating lighting rigs. After moving to the UK, I really wanted to turn my hobby into a full-time career which led me to become a Lighting Design Technician.
Lighting is in my blood, I’m incredibly passionate about lighting up the world in an appropriate and modern way, as well as increasing the public awareness of lighting in a positive way (so much so that my friends tell me to stop talking about lighting all the time!).
I joined the ILP Illuminated River Group because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to contribute to a project that will impact millions of people on a daily basis and will hopefully raise the positive connections people have with lighting and the lighting industry.
