Committee Chair

Eric S. Perkins

Eric has been Lighting Certified, since 1999. He holds a B.S. in Meteorology, from SUNY Oswego, NY. as well as extensive study & coursework in EE and ME at NYIT and an MFA in Lighting Design from Parsons School of Design. He is employed with New York Digital as an in-house Senior Lighting Specialist and holds extensive knowledge / experience in lighting applications, photometrics, light sources and product design. He is currently President of the IES Light Sources Committee and a 33-year veteran of the Lighting Industry and holds lighting related patents under his name. An accomplished speaker, educator and technical writer, and (fun fact) a former voiceover artist, Eric is a fabulous lighting historian and avid collector of unusual / vintage lamps and photo controls. You could say that lighting has been a part of him all his life as he became fascinated with lighting and light sources at the age of 6 months old!
