Tim Schmall, a lighting designer, loved his job, but wanted something more permanent and exciting. After stumbling upon Harvard-Westlake he instantly knew what he wanted to do. After lots of phone interviews Schmall flew to Los Angeles where he was interviewed by former president Tom Hudnut.

Working with eager Harvard-Westlake students is the thing. Schmall said he is most excited about.

“Working with the students is the most exciting part,” he said. “It’s fun to see students get excited doing what I love to do.”

When Schmall isn’t working in his time consuming job of light design he enjoys being outdoors.

“I go running and biking. I bike to work almost every day,” Schmall said.
