“I love the nuances of lighting design and how it can make you feel, whilst drawing attention to or away from a particular space. Lighting has a dual impact as it has such a dramatic effect on aesthetics and textures as well as orientation and wayfinding.”
I’m still actively involved in projects to provide input on lighting design and electrical engineering. Whether designing street lighting or a building interior, we often simulate areas to test options and find the right combinations of fittings and effects.
I spent several years teaching interior lighting modules at the local TAFE which I found very rewarding. Teaching was a great way to learn how to articulate lighting science to an audience whilst sharing ideas and improving my baseline knowledge.
