The Lighting Practice is growing! Just last year, the firm welcomed several new members who contribute creative enthusiasm and industry knowledge to our projects and administrative practices. Three new lighting designers recently joined the team: Raphaella Pereira, Josh Schulman, and Alina Wolf. We are also pleased to introduce our new controller, Maria Capriglione.
Maria Capriglione – Controller
Maria brings more than a decade of financial experience to TLP. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business, Maria earned an MBA with a specialization in finance from the University of Baltimore Merrick School of Business. She previously worked in the Washington D.C. area as a corporate controller at Hendricks Investment Holdings.
Raphaella Pereira, AIAS – Lighting Designer
Raphaella’s pursuit of professional lighting design comes from her interest in lighting as a powerful tool to impact people’s lives and transform a moment to be truly memorable. She is earning a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Drexel University. Raphaella is an A.J. Drexel Scholarship recipient and a member of the Pennoni Honors College. Her project experience has expanded to include corporate, retail, multi-family residential, building facades, and exterior site lighting.
Josh Schulman – Lighting Designer
Josh Schulman previously worked as an independent lighting designer in the entertainment industry. In that role, he received the Barrymore Award for Lighting design of ART at Delaware Theater Company. Since joining TLP, Josh’s project experience has included education, corporate, and retail projects.
Alina Wolf – Lighting Designer
Alina’s prior experience was primarily in the museum sector, where she gained valuable project management, space planning, and design skills. Her talent as a designer comes from an interest in lighting’s balance of simplicity and complexity as well as its artistic and scientific qualities. Alina’s project experience has grown to include education, retail and hospitality environments.
We are proud to welcome these four new members to our team.
