Chris UbingerFounder + Chief Creative Officer
Being the creative side of the sandwich here at ILLUME, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for about eighteen years often doing lighting for concerts, corporate, and theatrical productions. I’ve had some awesome gigs throughout my career, but that is a story for another day. Though lighting is my first passion, I have learned to incorporate lots of visual elements into my designs. When I’m not designing for my clients (which is rare), I’m watching movies, with family, playing with my dogs, or in my favorite place – Disney World!
Kristin MaherChief Operations Officer
I make sure everything moves smoothly behind the scenes while Chris is working his creative magic. My training is in Human Resources, but I’ve ALWAYS wanted to work in the event industry – now I am living the dream! When I am not wrangling Chris on the job, I am wrangling him AND our dogs. If you need to find me, I will most likely be sipping on a craft beer and reading a book, crafting on my Cricut, or scampering around Disney World with the other half of my sandwich.
