Who I Am and What I Do
Tanya Lucente, Lighting Designer
“Lucente” translated from Italian means “brilliant/gleaming source of light”
- I have been a key player in the electrical and lighting industry since 1989
- Educated with industry leaders as well as at UBC, BCIT, VCC, IESNA, NCLPQ, and the US Green Building Council
- Recipient of three IESNA International Illumination Design Awards for 2004
- Facilitated educational classes on residential lighting & techniques
I have worked with many companies, including RADA Group (now MMM Engineering), PMG Engineering, Aerius Engineering and Premise Connect Inc., not to mention being on staff with Nemetz Engineering for over 5 years.
As a self-starter and goal driven individual with strong analytical skills and organizational abilities, I work independently and also collaboratively as part of a team.
Sometimes destiny can be so obvious (to others anyhow) looking back, the meaning of my name “Lucente” should have been my indicator.
Destiny grants us our wishes, but in its own way, in order to give us something beyond our wishes. [Johann Wolfgang von Goethe]
