“It was such a pleasure working with Gerald.  During the concept phase, he created beautiful sketches to convey his design ideas.  During the manufacturing phase, he found alternative materials to meet our budget.  And, during and after the installation phase, he went out of his way to make sure the final pieces were just right.”

     Gerald is that perfect combination of high creativity with heavy attention to detail. I have seen many examples of his designs and was impressed with them all.

He has high energy and enthusiasm that he channels into productive outcomes.  – Steve Schuster , Adjunct Professor , California State University

Gerald bills himself as an architect  (of Lighting) but he is truly an entrepreneur. Gerald’s work in the lighting industry has set the bar very high because his designs as well as his approaches to problem solving are so unique. He’s creative, he’s powerful, and he is well known in this industry. But outside of his industry, he has, potentially, even more energy. I regularly call on Gerald to bounce ideas around because I always know that he’ll provide great feedback, and he has great contacts to boot. – Joel Block  -Real Estate Hedge Fund Manager

“Gerald is a cross between Al Gore and Thomas Edison” – Larry Rothstein, ESQ, Stated Live at All Cities   October 2009

Acrylic Hi-bay - pic1Travis, We had a very good night last night. Your fixture performed at 2 FC at 30′ pole height. Congrats…I had my doubts. This project is going to come down to the installed cost per fixture. There are pros and cons to both LED and induction. Our asset manger was very impressed with our demo pole we set up. It looks like to me that a 150w Induction fixture is about right.  – Bruce C. Manning  Director of Engineering – Able Engineering Services
