Bio :
I am Marketing Manager at Studiotech which is based in Stockport, South Manchester.
Studiotech are a multidisciplinary engineering company that supports the design industry, including Lighting Designers, Architects, Landscape Designers and Interior Designers.
We take a collaborative approach with the design team to develop their lighting concept and take the project right through to completion.
What's your biggest accomplishment? :
Aside from the obvious that my children are my biggest accomplishment as they don't seem to be turning out too bad!
I think my biggest achievement in my working life has to be my development at Studiotech. It isn't all down to me though, it's down to having a supportive and amazing team around me 🙂
What advice would i give others looking for a job in lighting design? :
I am not a lighting designer so may not be the best to give career advice about lighting design, all I can say is that the lighting industry is an incredibly supportive and collaborative industry to be part of. Everyone I have met on my journey have been kind and helpful, I think once you're part of it, it would be really difficult to leave!
