I love light. I love designing lighting and playing lights. I think it's better to live life in the light than in the darkness. From daylight, sunlight, moonlight to candle lights, incandescent lights, neon lights, fluorescent lights to architectural lighting, art installation lighting, theatre lighting... It's amazing what light can do. It can change the way things are percieved and felt. Light has no definate shape or form, yet it can define space without a physical structure. Its poetic quality and metaphysical element is what makes architecture so fun. It's makes me love what I do because light and lighting isn't just a function, it's an art. I also love photography. I love capturing those moments of high lights, low lights, especially the shadows that play in light. It's pretty cool.
