Its been a very long time since I was here, so long in fact I couldn't remember my original user name etc!
In truth I had forgotten about the site and it only came back to me whilst trawling the web for news and ideas.
Primarily I am a Lighting Techno "geek", I work for Electronic Theatre Controls in their London office where I am a Senior Projects Manager.
Here I am responsible for the quality and delivery of lighting control systems, sold by and integrated by our dealer and sales networks.
We work closely with Disney across the globe and recently I have been working with Disney Cruise Lines on their newest ships, creating exciting and cutting edge lighting control systems, ship wide.
But we are certainly not limited to these markets, I work primarily in Europe, ME and Africa on projects from Opera Houses, Theatres, schools, Theme Parks, Conference centres and community halls, if you need a lighting system we will provide it.
I responsible for the design and delivery of systems such as the worlds tallest building in Dubai, Ferrari world, Grand Mosque (Abu Dhabi), Copenhagen Opera, Royal Opera House (London) and many many more!
That said, I also have a creative side, I have a BA in Theatre Design and history, from one of the UK's leading theatre Universities (Central School of Speech and Drama), where I specialized in Lighting Design. I am also an active member of the Association of Lighting Designers, primarily a theatre lighting design association.
I think it would be fair to say however that I have not "designed" in the creative sense of the word for a little while now!
I am and always have been very keenly interesting in themed environments and the seemingly limit less boundaries in the imagination in this area. I am looking forward to being part of the forums here again!
