Hi, I’m David Henry, and I think I’m addicted to Christmas Lights.
Seriously, though – it’s a ton of fun to impress my neighbors and inspire others with a captivating lighting display…on my house! And this year, I’ve decided to dive in and do the “real deal” – FM radio and color changing pixels lights driven from a computer.
As I began to dive into the “how-to” in the Christmas Light world, I quickly realized that there is a place for my unique voice. Why is that? Because for the last 15 or so years, I’ve found Stage Lighting to be a passion of mine, and for since 2009, it’s been my full-time career!
And with working professionally and teaching stage lighting comes the knowledge of pixels. Which is exactly what these new-fangled color changing Christmas lights work with – a match made in heaven!
Back to making Christmas lights happen…
As I dove in to various online forums, guides and how to’s, I realized that the perspective of *most* folks teaching Christmas lighting was from a very “Engineering” type perspective.
There’s nothing wrong with an Engineering/Mathematical brain or teaching, but it’s just not how my brain works, and I think there’s other people out there like me.
So, if you find your joy from soldering on circuit boards and following schematics – you’re not my kind of person – and that’s okay!
But if you want to make great Christmas lighting for your home, business or just for yourself, and you’ve found other guides too “techy”, “involved”, or “complicated”, I am here to create something for you.
I’m planning to write periodically to document my Christmas light displays, and also plan and teach how-to’s to make it all work together.
Sound like fun? I think it’s going to be, and I hope you’ll join me!
