Senior Lighting Designer
WELL AP, MIES
In pursuing her Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Southern California, Danielle discovered her passion for lighting design during a crash course on HVAC Systems, Acoustics, and Lighting during her third year. Inspired by her lighting professor, she pursued every avenue available – from independent study courses to theatrical lighting. Upon graduating, Danielle returned home to Seattle and began working on local projects such as the Seattle Asian Art Museum, Pacific Place, Seattle Children’s Building Cure, and Expedia Headquarters.
Danielle’s design approach focuses on integrating lighting into architectural space, layering illumination to reinforce the core concepts of each unique project and design. With her WELL AP Credential, Danielle prioritizes human health and the occupant experience, utilizing light to craft each area’s atmosphere.
Following her primary inspiration, Danielle also works as an Adjunct Professor for Bellevue College, teaching the Lighting for Interiors class, where she focuses on bringing her everyday working experiences into the classroom to prepare her students for the importance of lighting design and interdisciplinary coordination. You might find Danielle rowing on Lake Union or taking pictures of flowers when not working or teaching.
