I lived a large portion of my life working as a lighting professional; manipulating,
controlling, coercing, and painting with light. It started in high school,
working in the theater and lighting for plays, choir concerts, band concerts,
dance recitals, assemblies, and corporate functions. I did many things backstage,
but lighting was one of the jobs I became good at. I branched out from
there, lighting theatrical performances in Community Theater. A little later,

I started working as an electrician in professional theater and moved up to
master electrician and, eventually, to lighting designer. All of this was while

Seeing the Light
I used to drive my wife a little crazy (well, truth be told—a lot crazy) because
I was always thinking about lighting. We would be sitting in a restaurant and
having a conversation and suddenly I would get quiet. After a moment she
would cock her head slightly and glare at me, “You’re looking at the lighting
again, aren’t you?”
And I was.
