"Following 11 successful years with the New York City-based lighting design firm L'Observatoire International, WATT was founded by Jason Neches upon relocating to beautiful Seattle, Washington. Jason served as L'Observatoire's Director, overseeing a staff of 20 designers divided into separate studio teams. In addition to studio and practice management, Jason also served as Project Manager and Senior Lighting Designer on many notable L'Observatoire projects.
