Dean is the "L" in LSW and grew up in Alberta. He discovered lighting while pursuing an education degree. Six pages into a lamp technical guide, and he knew what he wanted to be when he grew up.
After gaining over 21 years experience in lighting at both the retail and wholesale level, Dean moved on to purchase a lighting agency back in 2008 and hasn’t looked back since.
At LSW Lighting, Dean does some design and AGi32 work. With his help, his clients get the right design for their needs.
Dean also manages a lot of the business side of the agency while playing a leadership role within the sales and operations of the company. He also is the go to IT guy.
In his spare time, Dean loves to play with his pooch (Jetta) and tool around with cars or computers. When he is not doing any of those he likes to tinker with his Harley Davidson Rocker Custom motorcycle.
Patrick, a founding member and the original "S" in LSW. Although he has recently retired remains a very close friend and will always be considered a Team member.
He remains the man who did everything at LSW organically. He is a journeyman electrician, who has a decade’s worth of experience of working for a lighting manufacturer, and an equal amount of experience working at the company formally known as Focus Lighting Agencies.
Patrick’s interests outside the world of lighting revolve around his family, riding the open roads on his shiny black Harley Davidson motorcycle and cheering on the hockey teams of Edmonton.
Colin Wright - Colin Wright is the “W” in LSW and has worked 25 years in the lighting industry.
Previous experience comes from being the Principal of Focus Lighting Agencies.
You can often find him working behind the scenes on stage productions and as a member of the crew for various live bands. *There is a story in there somewhere*.
Colin loves working with people on the design team to get the lighting to work out just right. It is a moment of pride when the outcome of the design matches the concept perfectly.
He takes on a mentor role with the up and comers in the lighting industry, to help them stay current with technology and environmental factors.
Colin appears to be a bit of a renaissance man when it comes to his time outside of work.
He loves the theatre, music, and traveling. He also finds time to give back to his community by volunteering for several charities and organizations around town.
Turning Edmonton into a world leader in lighting is Colin’s dream and he has the best words to live by: "Be Involved".
