A graduate of The Catholic University of America’s School of Architecture, Chris started his career in architecture studios learning detailing and design on a wide range of project types. Early in his career he was bitten by the lighting design bug and has spent nearly 10 years working for lighting consultants and lighting manufacturers on the East coast. He and his wife relocated to Iowa in 2013 and he began working for a local lighting rep agency before getting back into design community full-time. His experiences blend a talent for detailing, well-honed architectural design skills, and a keen consideration for budgeting into a comprehensive package that allows Chris to communicate fluently with architects, engineers and contractors to help them realize the full potential of their designs through lighting.
Courtney’s eye for design is unmatched and rare to find in lighting design firms. With a BFA in Interior Design and additional credentials in Graphic Design, Courtney understands the design vocabulary required to compliment the interior design finishes, themes and styles brought to a project by the architect and interior designers. Courtney also spent time employed by a lighting showroom working with contractors – so she understands pricing, delivery, schedules and the need for a product to match all the above. She also has a vast knowledge of manufacturers and can typically find an alternative to a product when required due to budgets or availability without compromising the design aesthetics.
