My name is Max Okst, and I am a Lighting Designer presently based in Los Angeles, CA. I specialize in lighting for theatre, dance, architecture, and live events.
I am currently a second-year graduate student at The California Institute of Arts pursuing an MFA in Lighting Design. I recently received my BFA in Theatre Production and Design from Ithaca College. I am originally from Long Island, NY, and am interested in exploring the artistic and cultural differences between the East and West coasts.
My goal as a designer is to create engaging and immersive experiences for audiences and guests. I strive to create spaces that are meaningful, intentional, and visually captivating. I believe the best way to achieve this is through innovation, dedicated collaboration, and thoughtful storytelling.
In addition to my work as a designer, I have experience with crew management, console programming, followspot operation, and technical lighting paperwork. When not in a theatre, you’ll find me boating, scuba diving, in the archery range, or learning as much as I can about our ever-changing industry!
