Lily Meaker


Lily joined The Lighting Practice in 2022 as a Designer, where she coordinates with allied team members, assisting with documentation of design and performing construction administration tasks. Lily graduated from Syracuse University with a focus in Theater Design and Technology. She acted as the lighting designer for three shows at SU Drama, and before that was the assistant lighting designer with SU Drama. Lily’s interest in lighting design piqued during her high school years volunteering in theater, where she noticed the vivaciousness that lighting design brought to the production. When she’s not adding to the magic of lighting design, Lily enjoys ceramics, playing soccer, and hunting for the best cup of coffee.

Why did you become a lighting designer?
Lighting felt like magic, and I wanted to be apart of creating that.

What is your favorite thing about working in Philadelphia?
Not having a car.

Do you have any unusual skills or talents?
I started ceramics about six years ago in high school. It’s a creative outlet that I enjoy and let’s me share art with my friends and family. I’ve probably kept less then ten pieces since 2016.

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
No color glitter.
