His lighting with Michel Crête's sets is breathtaking. He believes that designers should work with chiaroscuro, creating haunting effects for productions like Alégria, Mystère, Saltimbanco, and many others.

He has designed lighting for the stunning staging of international performances by the Eagles, Dixie Chicks and Peter Gabriel; and for Turkmenistan's XXth Anniversary Independence Gala. In 2013, he toured a cycle of conferences entitled "Art and Poetry in Stage Lighting" to Paris, Bergamo, and Madrid.

His many awards include a Drama-Logue award by the Los Angeles critics for best lighting system (1992).
