Hi! My name is Kyra Traxler. I am currently working as a Lighting Designer at Birkenstock Lighting Design in Marin County California, where I do everything from coming up with concept designs for clients, to calculations of light levels, to making CAD drawings for the architects that we work with. Recently, I graduated first in my class from the University of Colorado, Boulder receiving a Bachelor’s in Environmental Design with an Architectural Emphasis and a Certificate in Architectural Lighting Design. Lighting design allows for me to combine my passion for architecture with my passion for learning how design can effect the people that inhabit the built environment. In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, hiking, shopping, cooking, and reading. Design is an essential part of my life and allows me to pursue my passions daily! For my full resume, click here.
