Dylan Garrett, CEO
"My journey with Light Dance began when I was a junior in high school. My friends loved electronic dance music, we were good kids, we didn't drink or do drugs so techno dance parties served as our escape from the stress of AP classes and college preparation. Some of my favorite memories from that time came from dancing in basements until there were literally holes in our socks.
Light Dance was born out of a desire to make those parties even more fun. We were looking for an easy way to fill a room with music reactive lights and no available products met that need, so we built our own."
Dylan graduated from the University of Southern California in 2013 with a degree in Business Entrepreneurship and coursework in engineering management. He has been working on Light Dance since high school, and dedicated the last four years to collecting the tools to build this company. His passion for the product, and familiarity with the target market, make him uniquely suited to lead this venture
Paul Garrett, President
"I have always been fascinated by how the synchronization of light and music elevates our emotions. This allure lead me to a career in the motion picture and video industries where images and music are skillfully used to enhance our emotional experiences.
Light Dance does the same thing. It raises the energy of a party, or helps you relax when you want to chill out. Most of all it makes people smile, and I love that."
Paul has a diverse background in social media, video production, photography, network television, feature film post-production and marketing/publicity for multimedia companies and Hollywood Studios. During his nine years in Los Angeles, Paul worked for MGM/UA and Universal Pictures. While at the studios he learned the craft of “emotional marketing,” which has the powerful ability to influence the hearts and minds of viewers. Paul is also president of Stone Canyon Productions, which he founded in 2001. Through that company, he has produced a wide variety of videos and high impact photography for both corporate and non-profit institutions in the USA and abroad.
