Paul Cook established his lighting design practice in 1998 having spent 15 years working as  lighting technical crew. After training at Varilite he began a period of programming for other designers and gained a vast array of skills that have been used over the years that followed. He was eventually asked to design shows in his own right. This work then lead to a full time career  in lighting design,  recently worked for clients such as Bentley automotive,  Salesforce, Google, the GLA , Dubai Parks and Resorts , RedBull, and Cisco.
