Likhitha earned her bachelor’s degree in architecture in India and worked as an architect for a year before moving to the United States to continue her education. She studied lighting while pursuing her master’s in Building Science at University of Southern California. Her background in architecture has helped her understand the aesthetic effects of lighting. Likhitha is an active member of the IES, and she was the recipient of the 2017 IES Young Professional Scholarship and 2017 IESLA Saul M. Goldin Memorial Scholarship as well as a winner of the 2016 IESLA Russell Cole Memorial Graduate Student Design Competition. Outside of work Likhitha enjoys cooking and hiking.
A Colorado native, Nico earned his bachelors in Architectural Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. During his time in Boulder, he participated in his local IES chapter where his passion for lighting grew. Understanding the creative potential in lighting design, particularly emphasizing architecture though light, motivated him to move to Los Angeles and pursue a career as a Lighting Designer for Oculus Light Studio. Outside of the office, Nico spends the majority of his time in various outdoors activities that include soccer, fly fishing and surfing.
