Metro DC Dance Awards, Excellence in Lighting Design

The Washington Post [Alan Kriegsman] called my designs"shrewd enhancements" and the Village Voice [Gwin Joh Chin] wrote,"...the lighting by Stefan Johnson enhanced the mood...". When you need a lighting designer, please consider me.

My variety as well as my depth of lighting design experience would prove to be a particularly strong asset for the productions you are producing.

I have an extensive background in a large variety of shows.

I have experience in designing for dance, theater, events, performance and music.You can see from my enclosed job list: Experience working in many theaters --both large and small as well as spaces that are not normally used for performances involving professionals from many backgrounds. working well with others • using resources with maximum affect to create innovative results All can be important to your production. I have been involved in many productions

[including working on shows at

the Kennedy Center, Woolly Mammoth, and Dance Place, among others]
