LANTA CONSULTANTS
Terry Michael - Lighting Consultant

I started my professional career after graduating from the Ohio Institute of Technology with a Bachelor's Degree in Electronics Engineering. Working as an Electrical Engineer, I designed complex multi-million dollar systems for the semiconductor industry. I specialized in electrical power design, international safety standards and project management. After 20 years in engineering, I tired of working in an office environment for a large international manufacturing company. I dreamed of being self-employed, the outdoors and more of a "hands on" job.

In 1999, my dreams came true and I ventured out on my own and started up an Outdoor Lighting Contracting Business. I spent the next 10 years designing, installing and maintaining Landscape Lighting Systems for high- end residential homes and some commercial projects. My business was structured to sub-contract these projects for various contractors. In 2009, with the downward swing of the economy and the closure of numerous landscaping companies, it became obvious that I needed to have more independence so I started my company and am licensed in both Commercial and Residential Outdoor Lighting.

Today, I offer both consulting and contracting services on all types of Outdoor Lighting Projects. I utilize leading edge and green technologies to ensure each project is cost effective, reliable, easy to maintain and looks great. I perform lighting maintenance on a large number of installations, with many customers of +11 years. I can supply assistance on your Outdoor Lighting Project at any level of involvement desired, including: lighting concepts; lighting design; lighting controls; troubleshooting; repair; personnel training or complete installation.
