Nigel works as a freelance design/CAD engineer and has over 25 years’ experience in the entertainment lighting industry. Over the years he has been heavily involved in the detailed mechanical design of numerous proprietary products, both as a full time employee and, more recently, as a freelance engineer. Projects include the Light & Sound Design ‘Icon’, ‘Icon Washlight’ and ‘Icon-M’ Luminaires, as well as the PRG ‘Badboy’, ‘Bestboy 4000’ and ‘Bestboy Wash’ Luminaires.
In addition to lighting fixture design he has worked on various special one-off, bespoke engineering products for stage, TV and theatre.
