Lighting designer Mike Baldassari moves from one genre—theatre, film, television, concert—to the next with the confidence and flexibility the entertainment design industry demands.

Baldassari will be speaking at the New York Master Classes: Lighting + Projection, June 2-4 at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and The Gallatin School, where he will share his advice on remaining versatile in the entertainment industry.
