David Trapp

Managing Director

Dave’s in this for the goosebump moments. It’s what got him into the events industry and it’s why he’s been doing it for 30 plus years.

Dave drives much of the innovation in the business, pushing the boundaries of what’s achievable creatively, with a focus on technology. His balance of creative vision and technical knowledge is invaluable in creating unique and exciting concepts for Lux clients. He’s always seen events as a way to tell stories, using light and sound to invoke emotion.

Dave’s favourite thing about his business is the team. He’s constantly inspired by a group of professionals who share a passion for what they do.

A self-proclaimed ‘simple guy’, Dave’s a proud dad who loves travel adventures and is a health and fitness machine. When he’s not suited up running a show, you’ll find him at the gym, competing in triathlons or on the rugby field.

Kirsty Mainstone

Events Director

Following four years immersed in London’s events industry, Kirsty joined Lux in 2010 where she started the Events Management arm of the business. From client liaison to creative concepts, Kirsty manages the team to deliver what we promise every time.

A moment with her pink tape recorder in the 80s sparked her love of events. She realised the power of a good sting when she played ‘Electric Blue’ at a school sports carnival. The vibe was set and that was that.

She went on to earn a degree in Commerce, PR and Marketing from Curtin University, but it was her time at the Australian Hotels Association that encouraged her to make the switch from communications to events.

Highlights from Kirsty’s 20+ year career include working for HP on the Sundance Film Festival in the US and the opening of Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport in the UK, which was opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Closer to home, the Shining the Light water projection installation for the Australia Day Council was one of Lux’s most successful collaborative projects, working closely with local aboriginal elders and a range of event partners to create an experience that was impactful, meaningful and well received by thousands.

She loves how the events Lux delivers may only last a few hours, but those hours can be the ‘best night ever’ for those people. The power events have to change people’s perception on an issue or imbed memories forever is pretty rad stuff in her books.

Interestingly, Kirsty carried the Olympic torch in 2000 and speaks Norwegian, a skill she honed living in Norway on exchange as a student.

Outside of work, Kirsty like to cook, eat and repeat. She’s an adventurer and likes to explore new places (to eat) and spend time with her gorgeous young family.

Production Director

Andrew brings over 28 years of experience and dad jokes to the Lux team. Known for his sublime showcraft, he leads the production team with knowledge, expertise and vast professional networks.

Andrew qualified with a degree in Production and Design majoring in Sound Production from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

Since then, his skills have taken him around the world and into some very interesting situations, including events requiring permanent military escort in Beijing and the 1997 Pacific Rim Forum, which took place in Hong Kong as Great Britain handed back Hong Kong to China. He was working in Sydney during the hype of the 2000 Olympics and has driven production for the annual Diggers and Dealers Forum for over 26 years. One of his biggest career thrills includes calling the show for One Big Voice, an event that saw 15,000 participants amass inside RAC Arena.

Andrew loves the culture, event diversity and people at Lux, not to mention the top notch gear. He was initially drawn to this industry because of the technology and how fast it was evolving. It was the beginning of digital sound and video editing, video switching and the convergence of slide projection and video projection for business events.

Outside work, Andrew loves his shed. Woodworking and DIY projects make him a happy man, especially if it means creating a better home for his family. He’s also an expert on 80s alternative music, a collector of records and loves his HIFI.

Two of his greatest achievements are producing award-winning gala events ART BALL for the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and ALTITUDE for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, which he designed and delivered for many years.

In 2016 Grant won the People’s Choice Award at the Business News 40 Under 40 Awards, which recognises excellence among WA’s young business professionals. The same year he was named in The West Australian’s ‘100 Most Influential West Australians’ list, which amuses him to no end.

Amy Friel

Event Manager

Amy gave up her dream of becoming a marine biologist because she is scared of seaweed. That’s a good thing because it freed her up to become an absolute gun in the events industry.

Hailing from Northern Ireland, she fell in love with events after attending her very first concert – Westlife. Swept up by the lights and atmosphere of the 90s boy band movement, she made it her mission to make people feel the same joy she did in that moment.  Since then, Amy earned a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Leisure and Event Management from Ulster University in Northern Ireland and has worked across multiple event disciplines, including corporate, large scale, outdoor and concerts. Coordinating hot air balloons and fireworks simultaneously over a sea of tall ships for millions of spectators is the kind of stuff that gets Amy fired up.

Amy’s energy is matched with her approachability and good humour and she brings a wealth of international experience to the team.  Amy once organised a roadshow with seven events across five cities in two countries with three weeks lead time – a true testament to her expertise, agility and diligence.

She’s a movie buff, a tea expert and an illusionist (wears active wear to get coffee). She’s passionately opposed to banana’s and once illustrated a children’s book, which is ironic because she can’t draw.

Mandy has been working her magic at Lux for eight years.  Following a ten-year stint in information technology, Mandy made the leap into the events industry and hasn’t looked back. From new business and logistics through to accounts and supplier management, Mandy is a key support to Lux’s senior management and events team.

Mandy is qualified in Business Administration, which complements her elite attention to detail. Balancing this is her unique creativity, exceptional interpersonal skills and genuine love of helping others.

She loves the diversity of her role and how the Lux team continues to grow with accomplished people bringing their impressive skills to the Lux family.

Two of her favourite moments at Lux involve large scale projection – the 270-degree custom multimedia piece created for the Altitude Ball in the aircraft hangar at the Royal Flying Doctor Service of WA and the unique water projection show at Elizabeth Quay for Australia Day 2021, which was created in collaboration with local aboriginal elders.

Gardening and summer sunshine rate pretty highly for Mandy, nearly as high as dogs and documentaries. It’s a little known fact that Mandy is one half of a sibling duo that works at Lux. Can you guess who?

Damiano Minghetti

Damiano Minghetti

Production Manager and CAD Design

Born and raised in Rome, Damiano brings over 25 years of Italian passion and creativity to the Lux team – as well as some delightfully questionable English. His hopeless passion for double espresso is only outdone by his sense of humour and expert ability to engineer relationships between people and technology.

Damiano specialises in creative and experiential projects at Lux, where his lateral thinking comes into its own. His background in creating visual experiences in clubs, theatres and outdoor events set him in good stead to transition into an expert lighting and video mapping technician.

Damiano was once the Technical Director of Dissonanze, an annual electronic music and video art festival held at the Palazzo Palazzo dei Congressi in Rome. At Lux, some of his best event experiences have been the Altitude Ball for the RDFS in their Jandakot hangar, as well as the annual Art Ball galas at the Art Gallery of WA and the Brookfield Winter Lights installations.

Passionate about music, Damiano is also experienced in both sides of the music biz. He plays guitar, keys and drums (skills he is trying to pass onto his kids) and, following studies in digital audio production, founded and operated his own recording studio.

Damiano loves the variety and respectful culture at Lux, as well as the encouragement to aim high and set challenging goals.

Frans Jansen

Technical Director and Production Designer

Frans is an internationally renowned lighting designer who joined the Lux team in 2021.

Watching live concerts and festivals on TV as a young kid ignited a love for how lighting brings a show to life. At just nine years old, Frans started a hobby disco show with a friend that grew into a legitimate business. Twenty years later, he’s still in love with creating lighting shows, but with bigger and better toys.

He studied sound and vision in The Netherlands, specialising in lighting design. Touring the UK with Take That in 2009 opened his eyes to the world of logistics and large scale production, which set the tone for his professional career. Since then, he’s worked primarily on large scale dance festivals around the world. One of his favourite experiences include working on the 2015 Defqon.1 Festival in Santiago, Chile. The energy and atmosphere was pure magic – unlike anything he’d ever seen before.

His experience in the European festival market is invaluable to Lux. He’s a perfectionist and uses his global networks to discover new and exciting ways to create the best lighting shows Perth has seen.

Outside of work, Frans is a keen woodworker and DIY aficionado. A Dutch native, Frans followed his heart to Perth where he now lives with his wife and young family. Lights are cool, but nothing makes him happier than rolling around on the lounge room floor with his young son.

She’s also super proud of the seven-hour stint hand-making epic crystal chandeliers for the Telethon Ball.

A mad keen rollerskater, when she’s not installing an event, you’ll find Sam carving up the concrete anywhere she can.

Rob Lizzi

Operations Manager

Rob found his way into this industry by mistake, and we’re glad he did. He used to hire a vision mixer to a staging company who were looking for camera operators. The rest, as they say, is history.

One of his favourite career memories was New Year’s Eve in 1999, mixing cameras on Cottesloe beach for national concert, The Last Australia Sunset, in front of 65,000 punters. The televised event was coordinated across the country, with live crosses as the sun set in each state on the final day of the 1900s.

These days, Rob doesn’t often see the final product of the events we produce. Instead, he waves the trucks off as they roll out the warehouse and welcomes them back when they roll back in hours later, usually through very tired eyes.

In his role as Operations Manager, no two days are ever the same. He gets to be a social worker, a friend, a dad, and sometimes even the bad guy. Rob’s wisdom and experience are highly valued at Lux.

Rob is passionate about sports photography and when he’s not juggling crew and logistics at the warehouse, you’ll find him on the sidelines at his local soccer club where he volunteers as the club photographer.

Aimie Potter

Business Accountant

Aimie has been whirling numbers for over 17 years. Her interest in business and numbers started early when she started learning the art of bookkeeping in Far North Queensland at just 17 years old. She made this official by earning a Bachelor of Business (Accountancy) from the Queensland University of Technology and a Graduate Diploma of Chartered Accounting from Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand.  Aimie also has a Cert IV in Training & Assessment as well and Cert IV in Massage Therapy.

Aimie’s childhood aspirations to become a florist were nearly realised when she landed an in-house accounting role for a flower wholesaler. She would help pack orders in the warehouse then go into the office to work on the accounts, which eventually led to her completing a Cert II and Cert III in Floristry. The temptation of walking into a warehouse full of flowers nearly took her away from the books and into the blooms!

Aimie values the proactive approach to improve business systems at Lux, as well as the generosity shown towards staff. Her vast professional knowledge, megawatt smile and friendliness makes her a key asset to the Lux team.

Aimie’s skills are revered in the office, especially every second Thursday when she processes payroll.
