A New Opportunity at Focus Lighting!

That’s right, thanks to a fortunate series of events I’m now officially the new intern at the offices of Focus Lighting in New York!

I’m really excited to get some experience in a working lighting firm to complement and reinforce what I am learning at Parsons.  I am learning a ton at Parsons, thanks to my great professors who are all working professionals as well, so this is absolutely no reflection on them or on the program at all — I’m simply a person that loves to learn.  My first day at the office was this past Friday, and from what I can tell so far, I will learn a lot from the people there, not just about lighting but about the design business as well.  When I made the decision to move to New York I never imagined that the entire city would become my classroom, but here I am!

What’s fun is that after only a day I already started finding mutual connections to people in the office; I know it’s a cliche but I have to say it: it truly is a small world.  One of the people there even went to Emerson for his undergrad, just like me!  Anyway, hopefully I’ll be able to post and comment on interesting experiences and things I am learning there, without getting too specific and breaching confidentiality agreements, personal privacy, or anything of that nature.  I do hope that Focus soon jumps on the blog/social media bandwagon with me, though, because there are certainly a lot of interesting things going on there to share.

At any rate, a huge thank you to the people who helped make this possible, especially my highly-supportive family and friends.  I’m really excited to see where this opportunity will take me, and I hope you’ll continue reading, commenting and exploring with me!
