Director of Production Design

Eric has been with the company since 1993 and oversees the Production Design Department as well as maintains the position of Technical Director and Lighting Designer on many of the company’s top projects. He works to pair the designers to projects, manages the design staff and mentors them on projects as well as sets the company technical conventions. Eric’s senior leadership skills, attention to detail, design and drafting skills have been utilized for years on repeat client projects and he has helped the company advance technically year after year by utilizing the latest software, hardware and lighting technology available.

Eric has his Master of Fine Arts from University of California, Irvine and was the recipient of the Jo Melziner Design Award while obtaining his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Utah. Prior to working with Brite Ideas, he completed an internship with Jim Moody, assisting on the Vickie Lawrence show, Hard Copy and Entertainment Tonight. He has also had his production work with Kawasaki Motor profiled in PLSN Magazine.

The number of projects Eric has been involved with are too numerous to count but if asked some of the most memorable and most gratifying for Eric have been working as the Account Representative and Technical Director for the Kawasaki New Product Showcase, Lighting Director for the NFL Media Relations for nine Super Bowls and Lighting Director for Richard Nixon’s State Funeral. While these events were each very different in scope and content, they all allowed Eric to work directly with the client to showcase the client’s needs and in some cases to expand and technically change elements for that event and all future events the clients would do. These events also capitalized on Eric’s high level of work and technical standards and professionalism as many of them were high profile and had high levels of production elements involved. The successes of these shows has been realized year after year and are a shining example of what Eric continues to bring to every project.
