What is the best lighting project you have worked on and why?
The atrium light features we made with Waterford Crystal for Holland American Line. This project was a real challenge that started from sketches on A4 paper and was turned in to a major piece of engineering, weighing 1.5 tons. Installing each fitting was also tricky, but seeing what they looked like was very rewarding.

What is your favourite place?
It has to be Venice , having worked there and holidayed I think there is no place like it. The history, the architecture is stunning. It’s so different working with the people who live there who showed me the true Venice and their way of life.
