In this course, we will discuss residential lighting design criteria to consider for an aging population as it relates to an aging-in-place lifestyle. The changing demographics related to age groups will have a significant impact to future lighting design. Additionally, it is important to understand that, as we age, increases in visual impairment require a greater design focus to ensure ease of movement, comfort and safety.
Beginning in college, Dane realized that he had a passion for lighting when he was presented the opportunity to do lighting design and programming in the theater. That love of lighting has only increased in the 16 years that he has been in the residential lighting industry. Beginning with showroom sales, management and outside sales, Dane concentrated on technical lighting specification and training on LED usage within residential and commercial projects. In 2015, he had the opportunity to join Richard Alan & Associates as a manufacturer's representative and in 2020 earned his Certified Lighting Manufacturer's Representative Certification with the American Lighting Association.
