Meet Our Newest Team Members: John Conley and Lauren Tyler

A key element of The Lighting Practice’s success is our ability to find and recruit talented team members with a variety of experience and expertise. We are pleased to introduce the newest members of our design team John Conley and Lauren Tyler.

John D. Conley, Lighting Designer
John joined the team in 2015 after graduating from The Pennsylvania State University with an integrated Bachelor and Master of Architectural Engineering with a focus in electrical and lighting design. John always had an interest in architecture and design. He appreciated the impact that lighting could have on a space. Penn State’s Student IES trips provided John with exposure to designers and lighting manufacturers from across the country. The designers’ passion and industry opportunities furthered his desire to work in the field of lighting. John gained hands-on experience during an internship in Detroit, MI with a prominent A&E Design and Planning firm. Since joining The Lighting Practice John’s project experience has expanded to include education, retail, and hospitality environments. Outside of the office, John feeds his love of architecture and the need to create through traveling and playing music.

Lauren E. Tyler, Lighting Designer
Lauren joined our team in 2015 after relocating to Philadelphia from Fort Worth, TX. Lauren graduated from Baylor University where she studied Technical Theatre Design. She then obtained her Masters in Theatre Design with a focus in lighting and projections from Illinois Urbana Champaign. Lauren has been involved in theatre since she was in elementary school and developed a real love for lighting in high school. She continues to be inspired by how lighting can transform a space and how it can affect mood. Lauren’s past lighting design experience includes concerts, theatre, opera, dance, musicals, museums and places of worship. Since joining The Lighting Practice Lauren’s project experience has expanded to include corporate and retail environments. Outside of the office, Lauren loves spending time outdoors with her two dogs.

We are excited to have John and Lauren join our team.
