Director of Digital Marketing and Customer Acquisition

Founded in 2011, and headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, LUX LED Lighting was born from Mighty Bright, a leader in portable LED lighting technology with roots in manufacturing dating back to 1985. Our emphasis on design ensures every aspect of our LUX LED products is formed with the user in mind, thoughtfully blending style, versatility and feature-rich solutions.

After seeing enormous success in the hospitality and commercial markets, an unexpected side effect emerged.
