Having 15 years experience in the Lighting Industry, Project Management and Lighting Solutions. I am currently the proud partner and business owner of Liquid Lighting.
I have completed many Commercial; Warehouse; Residential and Retail projects and I am accomplished in AutoCAD (Computer Aided Design), Relux Designs, Project Budgeting, Sales and Site Coordination. My specialities lie in the design and supply of various LED applications such as, retail, industrial/commercial and residential developments.
I don’t see myself as a sales person, but rather a solutionist – I listen to my client’s requirements whether they be a developer; architect; designer or engineer and I customize a lighting solution that ties in with their vision. I am passionate about my job and I love when a project comes together in the end, seeing the results of my efforts.
For the better part of two decades, I’ve been designing architectural lighting having completed hundreds of projects spanning various types of buildings; towns and challenges. I began my lighting education from a very young age receiving years of instruction from my grandfather, a former lighting designer. Growing up, I learned from many masters in the industry and trained to become an electrical contractor.
This benefitted me in applying myself technically within a project and understanding the requirements of both the lighting and the electrical side. I spent my years working for various stakeholders in the lighting industry, including manufacturing and sales. My experience focused on warehouse and office lighting design, but I also enjoyed opportunities to consult on projects for commercial interiors, restaurants and the hospitality industry.
For the past 3 years, his passion lies mainly in being able to play as a key stakeholder in the design and supply of a project, offering the full turnkey solution. I worked exceptionally well with the engineers and contractors due to his practical and technical mindset, this made me a great solutionist when a problem arose. I continue to consult architects, engineers; interior designers, developers, contractors, end-users, houses of worship and numerous other disciplines.
