Lucas Garrity

Lucas Garrity, CalArts

Luke Garrity designs lighting for concerts, live events, dance and theatre.  He strives to create work that is unexpected and prefers to ask the question ‘why not?’ instead of stopping at ‘why?’

Originally from Massachusetts, Luke received his MFA in Lighting Design from California Institute of the Arts.  Before attending CalArts he received a BS in Business Administration with a Minor in Theater from Northeastern University.

Living in Los Angeles, Luke works as a freelance Lighting Designer, Programmer, and Master/Production Electrician.  He is drawn to the freelance lifestyle because of the diversity of locations, different types of events, and the great people he connects with.

Luke has had an interest in lighting since childhood.  Coupling that passion with a love for music and live concerts led him to pursue a career as a Lighting Designer.
