Originally from New Mexico, Jeff started in lighting in Colorado in 1991. Coming from a family of architects, he approaches lighting design with a strong respect for the design intent of the architect, as well as the vision of the homeowner. Lighting helps define a space as tranquil or exciting, romantic or dramatic, depending on how you use it. Jeff’s approach inside this context is that Lighting Design done well should not be the star of any space; the vaulted ceilings, the rock fireplace, the cabinetry, the paint, the flooring, and all the things you fill your space with should be the stars of the scene, and the lighting is there as a ‘supporting cast member’, to have your stars really shine. Jeff usually spends his weekends hiking with his wife or reading a good book.
