Morgan has always been passionate about helping bring a collaborative vision to life through lighting. For her, this started with theater and working in various lighting design firms before it manifested in co-founding Gabler Youngston.
Now, Morgan and her team are dedicated to showing that lighting design isn’t work, it’s a work of art. No matter how many projects she’s completed, Morgan still feels personally invested in the quality of each job and how happy the client is in the outcome. Lighting design is an art and a craft, but for Morgan, the real skill and talent is in making the client’s vision come to life.
