Our Team

JD Young has been in the lighting industry for over 30 years, most of which were strictly in landscape lighting. JD’s training has included factory tours and seminars from some of the top manufacturers in the industry. His experience has given JD the knowledge and skill to help the customer through all phases of a landscape lighting project, from fixture choice to the final design. JD and his wife, Stacey, live in Dallas and are the proud parents of their son Brandon and wife Emily, dog Buddy, and 2 cats. When not at work, you can find JD on the golf course, sipping margaritas with his wife at his favorite Mexican restaurants.

Amy Mina came on board the family business in 1995 after graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a BBA in Marketing. Since then, she has completed numerous factory training seminars & trade exhibitions in the lighting industry and worn many hats running the business. After learning from her Dad for 22 years, she and her husband purchased the company so Ed could finally retire. Sadly, we lost Ed in December of 2018, but his legacy lives on in the incredible business he envisioned and built almost 30 years ago. Amy lives in Dallas with her Aggie husband, John, two boys Will and Harrison, and Australian Shepherd, Merry Claire. When she is not working, Amy enjoys watching her boys play sports and participating in other boy-mom activities with her family.
