    Will Gossett

    Lighting Designer & Programmer

About Me

I am a lighting designer and programmer for television, live entertainment, and architectural installations.

I am a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a degree emphasis in Lighting Design. While studying lighting at CMU, I had the tremendous opportunity to undertake internships with leading design firms in the lighting industry such as Full Flood, 22 Degrees, and Chris Werner Design. These experiences enabled me to get a jump start on a skill set that has been effective in the fields of television lighting, live entertainment, and architectural lighting design.

Up next, I'll be working as a Lighting Director on the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in LA. I reside in the Los Angeles area, but I am available for work worldwide.

Thank you for visiting and feel free to e-mail or call with any questions.
