Vada discovered her passion for lighting after her first theatre production in high school. Ever since, she has enjoyed the live aspect of entertainment and how light affects our day-to-day lives. After graduating from DePaul University with a BFA in Lighting Design, Vada served as the Lighting Design Intern at Seattle Repertory Theatre for the 2016-2017 season. She happily joined Orangelite in 2018 and has greatly enjoyed her opportunities exploring other areas of lighting such as broadcast, ESports, corporate, and concert touring. Her love of the arts – she loves to draw in her down time – inspires her designs and to push the envelope on every production.
