June and July are not only the first nice days of the year, they mark several milestones for me. First, its’ the 10th year of Lumenique LLC being focused exclusively on solid-state lighting – marking the point at which I left my last position as VP of Marketing and Design at Visa Lighting in 2006 to focus on all things solid-state as a solo act.
