Sean Cassidy

Designer

Sean Cassidy joined The Lighting Practice in 2019 after graduating from Thomas Jefferson University. He previously interned with a local lighting designer; it was in this role that Sean found a passion for using light as an artistic medium. Stemming from his interest in interiors and the built environment, he appreciates how lighting supports a mood and aids in the way people feel about a space. Since joining TLP, Sean’s experience has grown to include hospitality and healthcare environments. When he isn’t working, Sean enjoys indoor gardening and building functional ceramics.

What is your dream project?
Designing a large scale, custom installation for a public or commercial space.
