He has taught lighting design at the college level, and served as an instructor to the lighting trade. It comes as no surprise that Tom is one of only seven lighting professionals in the state of Georgia who is certified by the American Lighting Association.

I believe that a big part of my job is staying up to date on trends and products, so that I can guide my customers in selecting the right products as well as offering solutions to ensure their homes are properly lit.
