Tell us what you love about lighting: I love that lighting is both technical and creative. Every project is a snowflake with new and different challenges, forcing me to reach deep within my experiences to create the best possible solution for my clients.
Best thing about working at lucía: My co-workers and our clients
Favorite light fixture: The Studio Bel Vetro Bubbles chandelier – what’s better than a functional, fun light fixture? I can’t help but smile when I look at it!
Favorite book: A thesaurus, because I like words and their meaning, how to use words, coming up with different words with the same meaning. I think it’s because I like to write.
Most cherished song: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, of course!

Personal mantra: Be nice!
