Welcome to my website - thanks for dropping in.

The chances are that you've found me via one of two routes:

  • you're looking for a lighting designer in the Wessex area, in which case it would be a pleasure to talk to you about your project.

  • you're wondering who this guy is who seems to be popping up everywhere in lighting media , in which case, I hope the site helps to give you some helpful background about me and what I've been up to in an intensely busy lighting career.

The short version goes like this: I trained to become an electrical engineer but fell in love with the world of lighting manufacture. Circumstances (always a good euphemistic word, that) led me to lighting design in 1984 and the broad and narrow ways of a professional career led me eventually to Dorset and the establishment of jb-ld back in 1998 - or thereabouts . . . a decent amount of time ago, anyway.

Lighting design work continues to be a passion. I have built a reputation as the foremost lighting designer in Dorset, working on some fine residential projects designed by top quality, imaginative, architects. I came to residential lighting quite late, as my lighting studio in London focused specifically on commercial projects. But I love the amount of detail that residential projects bring with them. These building sites eventually turn into someone's home and the conversations round the kitchen table that lead to that final hand-over are a joy. No, not all the time, that would be asking too much!

I've been enjoying a parallel career a a lightng commentator, working for one of the major UK lighting magazines. That came to and end at the beginning of this year, but the experience of doing that kind of work has rubbed off on me and I intend to carry on with commentary and campaigning for Good Lighting via The Light Review, a new on-line magazine that will focus on what it takes to create the kind of lighting scheme that everyone can be proud of - not a situation that is always the case, I'm sorry to say, given the way that many projects are allowed to fail as a consequence of poor planning and execution.
