I create!

 

To invent something that has never existed before is my greatest passion. Being told “No” or “that can’t be done” is the fuel that motivates me.

 

If you had told me I would end up owning a lighting manufacturing company when I was pursuing my degree in Architectural Engineering and later went on to get an MBA, I never would have believed you. However, there is this wonderful symbiotic relationship between my formal education, past accomplishments and my interests that goes hand-in-hand in the lighting industry.

 

Welding, sculpting, wood working, and of course inventing new luminaires, I can usually be found in the shop into the wee hours of the morning. No, I don’t sleep a lot, but with so many things to learn, improve, and accomplish, sleep is a currency I can live without to feed my curiosity.

 

I continually get to create something new and exciting while using cutting edge (and rapidly improving) technology… Who wouldn’t sign up for that?

Food & Fitness!

 

I am obsessed about fitness and food.  I work out to eat and eat to work out. After discovering pole fitness as an alternate way to stay fit, I was addicted.  I took classes and ultimately became a pole instructor.  In fact, when I am on the road visiting my customers, it’s not unheard of that I will take a fitness class of some sort, usually yoga, pilates or pole, while in your city.  It just one of many things I love. I also, enjoy preparing my own dishes at home and trying new restaurants when on the road. I will usually seek out the #1 Yelp rated restaurant in your area.

 

I adore my little family, including the four-legged furry family members who come to the office with me every day.  I am the mother of the President Elect of LUX dynamics, Keoni McCarty, a joyful handful to say the least.  She is the pride of my life’s accomplishments. I am also honored to being able to help support my husband in this amazing venture, LUX dynamics, he has created from the ground up with his own two hands.

A book to the mind is as a gym to the body…

 

Whether it is a science fiction novel about time machines or a national geographic issue about volcanoes and earthquakes, I love to read! Unlike many of my friends and their video game addictions, books are my weak point. I find myself getting lost in the text, visualizing myself in the story, and finding a personal connection to the characters. To me, books are real-life dreams.

 

It is difficult to pull me away from a book, although, I love spending time with my dad at the LUX factory. I enjoy the hands-on experience with different tools and machines, organizing drill-bits, taps, end mills, and learning the business.

 

I have big plans to have a business of my own someday. I have been working on the business plan to manufacture fairy wands filled with refillable fairydust packets of varying potions. With this, if you’re in a mood to cast a spell to turn a frog into a prince or to have the ability to fly, you can go to the supermarket and buy that potion. My revenue from the initial sale of the wand is minimal, but I don’t care because I’ll make millions from the one-time use potion packs.

 

My company will be called LUXstar.

Musician and teacher extraordinaire

 

I like to teach. Whether it’s lighting, software, computer hacking, or music, I find myself at my best while teaching. My love for music began too long ago to remember, when my house was always filled with song. I spent all my formative years learning to play anything I could get my hands on, and making music is my outlet for my creative self-expression.

 

Lighting captured my interest since working at LUX dynamics as it is a never-ending process, but nothing compares to the feelings I get when I play a lick like this:

I love to learn and play the guitar!

 

About 11 years ago I started teaching myself how to play the guitar. There is something about playing that is so therapeutic to me and takes my mind off of anything I may be facing.

 

When I am not working in the Engineering department at LUX dynamics, I am always looking to enhance my own knowledge. My ultimate life goal is to never stop learning and innovating, so whenever I can have a good read or engage in an interesting conversation, I am on the right track.

Andy

Design Lead

The world is my playground.

 

Give me a mountain, and I’ll climb it. Give me a board, and I’ll ride it. Give me a bike, and I’ll learn how to do a wheelie. Anything “outdoor adventure” related is enough to get my attention.

 

With all the exposure to outdoor sports one could ask for growing up, I learned to love challenges. Doing a wheelie was my latest accomplishment. While going to school for my BS in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno, I finally figured out the physics needed to accomplish this much craved (silly to some) task. Silly to most, but I’ll never forget my first wheelie.

 

Post-graduation, I went to work at LUX dynamics and rapidly moved up to Design/Innovation Lead. I will never lose my passion for the outdoors, but it seems that lighting has found an equal place in my heart.

Work hard and play hard!

 

Great lighting makes the world a better place, and I have dedicated most of my career to connecting designers with the best products to help them realize their true design intent. I am looking forward to continuing this important mission with LUX dynamics and our industry leading products.

 

When I’m not out on the road meeting with clients and our agents, there is a very good chance that you will find me on the road cycling to burn the fuel that comes with my passion for great food and wine. I also love to get up in the mountains to ski, hike, or just simply take in the beauty of the outdoors.

 

I am a big believer in being part of a great team, and I’m not just talking about my passion for Liverpool, which is my favorite English Premier League team. I am thrilled to be part of an amazing team at LUX, where everyone is passionate not only about our success, but also about the success of our agents and customers. 

Bryan

Outside Sales Manager/Northeast

Love the process!

 

After realizing Major League Baseball had no use for an extremely below-average player, I figured college would be the best route for me. I’ve been in the lighting Industry for thirteen years, with the last three spent as a regional luminaire sales manager.

 

When I’m not selling lights, you can find me at wrestling tournaments, dance competitions, or baseball games with my three kids. In our free time, my wife and I go to concerts, run in Tough Mudders, get a good workout in, and most importantly, have fun. I love movies, most types of music, and I’ve been known to throw down on a video game every now and then. I enjoy working hard but never take myself too seriously. I am thrilled to help promote LUX dynamics’ products, values, and core beliefs.

 

I am a true believer in the fact that you have to do all of the little things right daily before you can get to the big things, and LUX dynamics lives by this principle!

It’s easy to find me and at the top of a mountain next to my 3 pooches.
I also enjoy a home cooked meal, prepared by my own two hands,
which always leads to just hanging out. Catch me on the court I have
been know to break an ankle or two.

I love sports, if I had to pick one it would be baseball.
 
During my 4 years of college, I had the privilege to play baseball for the University of Nevada, Reno. I was a utility player but spent most my time playing first, second, and third. I now enjoy going snowboarding and playing pickup basketball on the weekend. I come from a big family where I have 9 siblings, 8 boys and 1 girl.

Hiking & Nature

 

I absolutely love hiking and nature. I have even taken a trip to Oregon to hike there. I just find it so peaceful to hike and view the nature around you. It allows me to unwind from my busy life and forget everything for the moment to enjoy the beauty around me.

 

I hope to hike in different environments soon.

Video Games & Education

 

Video games are awesome! There is not much better than sitting at home playing games with friends. It helps me interact with my friends while challenging me as well. My favorite video game is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon.

 

I am currently studying at the University of Nevada, Reno. I plan on graduating with a double major in Accounting and Finance.

 

If I had to make a life goal, it would be to survive.

Family & Sports

 

My family is my everything. I value my family to the max and spend a lot of time with them. Watching sports, eating dinner, or even hanging out with them in the living room always makes my day. I always greatly appreciate the friends I have that are as close as family.

 

I also love animals. They are so cute to me. It is as they are an immediate stress reliever. Seeing cute picture of a cat or dog also makes my day.

Adan

Production Leadership

I love what I do here at LUX dynamics. For the most part, I am in charge of building crates. Ever since I was young, I loved to build things, so this job is right down my alley.

 

Outside of work, I enjoy working on cars or fixing up my house. What can I say? I am a fixer!
