Travis Shupe Assoc. IALD

Senior Lighting Designer

Travis has long been fascinated with light - both manufactured and natural. His interest is not merely in the source, but in how light and shadow sculpt and define the world around us. His journey in lighting began in the theatre, and he proceeded with studies in theatrical lighting design. Travis’s background in theatre, TV broadcast, and the live events industry provides him with excellent troubleshooting, time management, and creative problem-solving skills.
