I am electrical engineer, lighting designer, innovator, editor, blogger and an entrepreneur. After, I graduaded from Engineering I started to my career. However, there are plenty of website about lighting and architecture, I was stuck on gathering information about lighting. Due that, I created Lumenhub and combine all datas that I gethered through years. Thx for your interests on my site and please don't forget to be social :) Moreover, If you really liked the works in Lumenhub, please don't forget to donate.
