I am a lighting designer for 8 1/2 years now. Still working and enhancing my knowledge. My professional background is architecture.
I am a LEED AP certified and a licensed architect.
One of my goal in life is to make sure that I share all my knowledge to my kids and to other lighting designers before I die.
As a lighting designer, you will not only design light, but you will see the surroundings in different perspective. Light is life, and you are designing light for people. People may not notice light, but we appreciate the objects that highlighted by light and the emotions that created by light.
Architecture will nothing without light. Art will be nothing without light. Everything will be nothing without light.
The philosophy of light is vast.
The technicality of light is vast at the same time.
