I love the fall — cool breezes, autumn leaves, LDI, and a new Lighting Dimensions. A new Lighting Dimensions? Yes. Effective with this issue, I am thrilled to have David Barbour onboard as LD's full-time editor. Many of you know David well, as he continues as editorial director for Entertainment Design with editor David Johnson.

I would like to welcome California-based western sales manager Holly O'Hair to our team. Holly has several years in the entertainment technology magazine business with United Entertainment Media and Miller Freeman and is ready to provide expert consulting and marketing support for our customers and friends in both the Midwest and Western states. Holly is at [email protected].

As we get ready to celebrate an impressive 25 years of Lighting Dimensions, 15 years of our LDI trade show this November 2-4 in Orlando, and 35 years of Entertainment Design, I ask you to join me in welcoming the new Lighting Dimensions.

Take a look — you'll be glad you did.
