Design is not just what things look like, design is how things work and what they transmit. My design can be defined by personality, functionality and form. I am primarily interested in the way things function. I believe function is the essence of design, and the resulting form is created through attention to the client. Design is a process in which as a designer I am able to transform and shape interiors.

Cooper Lighting's SOURCE Awards - Award of Recognition, Honorable Mention

The SOURCE Awards competition is open to all lighting designers, architects, engineers, professional designers, and consultants who use Cooper Lighting fixtures in an interior or exterior design project. Students currently enrolled in any of these disciplines are also eligible to enter projects based on conceptual lighting designs utilizing Cooper Lighting fixtures, and are judged in a separate student category. Projects are judged on the blending of aesthetics, creative achievement, and technical performance and the degree to which the lighting met project constraints and design concept goals. The SOURCE Awards competition was created to furthering the understanding, knowledge and function of lighting as a primary element in design.
