Keeping abreast of rapidly changing technologies, Denise focuses on advances in lighting systems and sustainable design. With more than 30 years of experience, she’s highly skilled in helping owners and architects select energy-efficient, high-quality lighting systems for new construction and renovations.
Denise believes that lighting design should support the user's visual and non-visual needs in a sustainable, holistic way without sacrificing the surprise and joy that lighting can add to an environment. She continually works to find opportunities to improve system efficiencies for hospitals, schools, recreational facilities, cultural venues, office buildings, retail developments, and urban streetscapes.
Denise travels internationally to observe good lighting design and shares what she learns with her clients and peers. She authors articles for national and international publications on designing for a sustainable future and speaks frequently on the topic.
