About the Speakers:

Mike Gehring, FAIA, IALD, LC, LEED AP

Partner| KAPLAN GEHRING McCARROLL ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING

As the recipient of the AIA California Allied Professionals Honor Award in 2007, Mike Gehring was recognized for his support and contribution to the practice of architectural design.  He was welcomed in to the College of Fellows in the American Institute of Architects, an honor only a handful of lighting designers in the country have received.

 

As an architect and LEED accredited professional, Mike has the ability to seamlessly integrate his architectural training with his lighting design expertise.  His design philosophy is based on maintaining a realistic sense of his client’s needs and the importance of each projects’ requirements, such as delivering quality work on time and within budget.

 

Mike’s lighting projects have been published in: Architectural Record, Interiors, Interior Design, Hospitality Design, Architectural Lighting, Lighting Dimensions, LD+A, Professional Lighting Design, International Lighting Review, Beach Magazine, Luxe and Retail Image.

John Martin, IALD, LC

Associate Principal | KAPLAN GEHRING McCARROLL ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING

With more than 15 years of architectural lighting experience, John Martin’s proven ability as a lighting designer is evident in the diversity of his work.  He was singled out and featured in the Designer Profile of “Stage Lighting.”

 

His career began in theatre and later continued on to theme parks as an integral part of the award winning team for Universal’s Islands of Adventure Park.  Sowing confidence as a leader, John has the aptitude to design innovative, cost-effective, and energy efficient lighting systems.  As an effective and personable communicator, his skills are utilized as an instructor and guest lecturer within the design community.

 

John believes in the importance of lighting the space.  It should be compelling and relevant.
