“I have an absolute love affair with lighting, and have since I was a kid. It’s always been all about lighting for me, you know, I never wanted to be an actor or any of that stuff, and I don’t even know how that ignited in me. I remember being a child, and having – I strung all these Christmas lights up in my bedroom and I had programmed them to do different chases, and I had all these different touch lamps that you could touch and make dimmed at different levels, so I just had like, this circus in my bedroom when I was a kid. And I’m sure my parents thought I was nuts, but it just stemmed from this innate passion about lighting.”
