Eric Romeo is an architect, lighting designer and film and video artist. Romeo’s work in design began at The University of Texas at Arlington, where he received a B.S. in Architecture in 2004 while studying film and video simultaneously. He continued his studies in 2014 at Parsons, the New School, where he studied environmental sound design, architecture, landscape design and urban design and received an M.Arch in Architecture in 2016.

Romeo has worked professionally as an architect and project manager for 8 years with diverse project experience from a number of private residences, religious, institutional, retail as well as site specific art installations and exhibition design. He worked as a lighting designer for 2 years as an attempt to bridge the gap between architecture and film.

Romeo has continuously made short films since graduating from UTA in 2004. Mainly experimental in nature, he uses film and video to document architectural ideas through sound and image and time.

Eric lives in the Ridgewood neighborhood of New York with his cat, Beaufort. He enjoys reading, gardening and cooking.
