I doubt he needs much of an introduction around here; his name has come up quite a bit, especially in the last 12 months, that he’s now practically nearing super-star status; and rightfully so! Watch Restless City for a glimpse at the kind of magic he creates with light.
So this should be a treat for all you folks in Philly that read this site (and I know there are many of you :)); and oh, did I mention the event is FREE??
