I have worked in many roles within the industry and have helped train many young lighting designers, architects, designers, engineers, clients and investors in the importance of lighting design. I have developed CPD course material for Architects and realise the importance of offering a similar continued development to the Lighting industry. After moving from a manufacturing role to being a Senior Lighting Designer for 3 years I felt that I was continually losing touch with the latest trends and technologies in the industry and so I would like to ensure other designers are kept up to speed. It is my goal to work within the education sector and move in tertiary level teaching and I also wish to help the PLD with their quest. I also plan to start my own consultancy in New Zealand in order to create more awareness of the industry in Australasia.
