Trailblazers & Icons: Janet Lennox Moyer
Trailblazers and Icons is an inspiring and informative series of interviews with some of the lighting communities’ most recognized thought leaders, teachers and practitioners and others. The interviews elicit from each interviewee their major contributions to lighting and their perspective on some of the major issues currently facing the lighting industry. This video features Janet Lennox Moyer.
Jan Moyer literally wrote the book on Landscape Lighting. She sits down with host Dan Blitzer and expounds on her career path and what she is up to presently.
The views and opinions expressed in this series are those of the interviewee and do not necessarily reflect the official policies or positions of the IES and its staff. This video does not qualify for a CEU.
