Damion joined Light It Right in 2018 and has been an enormous asset to the team. He is always upbeat and keeps the team20190329_073741 laughing. We introduce you to Damion, our Install Foreman.

A little background on Damion:

Damion was born and raised in Winnsboro, LA, while living on and off in Texas. In 2010 he made the move to Texas official with his wife and 3 kids.  When Damion arrived in Houston he worked at a Print shop, but ultimately he knew this was not his path, so he attended HCC and got numerous certifications within the electrical trade.

Damion attended school for his electrical license, however once he joined the Light It Right team and working with low voltage lighting the lighting bug bit him and the high voltage world was left behind. Damion says he has fallen in love with the process as well as the before and after optics that lighting brings.  This past January, Damion earned his Certified Low Voltage Lighting Technician certification from AOLP, joining Brandon as a CLVLT at Light It Right.

“Landscape lighting makes a huge difference with the appearance and safety of homes and businesses. I continue to be amazed after every job.” 
Damion has truly brought a new eye to Light It Right and has taken over many of the duties Brandon handled on the job.
What is your favorite part of the job?
It is hard to decide my favorite part about working at Light It Right. My experience here has been priceless to me. In a little over a year I have expanded my horizons beyond anything I could imagine. I love to see a job finished. It makes me proud to see the customers faces when they see the difference once we have completed installations. I also work with a great group of people. I really appreciate the camaraderie between coworkers and management. It does help to get the hard work done. 
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I see myself only getting better .I really am looking forward to the years of experiences and opportunities awaiting me here at Light it Right. The sky is the Limit. I really enjoy the people and the atmosphere, I believe I have found my work home. 
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
When I’m not at work, I try to find time to work on my yard and other needed actives around the house. Once all that is complete I am a gamer to my core. I can often be found on the sticks from e-sports(madden & 2k) to classic games like sonic, I play them all. I also enjoy spending time with my family playing outside with our Great Dane, Lady Bug.  

 Damion continues to grow in his position and great things await him at Light it Right
