Cover for Designing Lighting magazine for August 2022

EXPOSURE: Designing Lighting

The first article in my series on residential lighting for Designing Lighting is out, and I am honored to be a part of this magazine! Getting the series together was not easy, however, and I have a long way to go before all six articles are complete.

What makes this hard? Writing for a peer group of professionals always intimidates me because I know there are readers with far more expertise than me. So what can I offer the reader?

Eventually I came to a new concept: Lighting Hope. In this series I will explore the missing middle of lighting, the sweet spot between the expensive design I know and the cheap, glare-inducing junk found in nearly every home. I believe there is a better way. The challenge is to find it together.

Read the article here and stay tuned for more from this series.
