Hollywood Lights, Inc., announces that Brian Peebles Kameoka has been promoted to Washington sales manager and has relocated to the Seattle office. Portland, OR-based Hollywood Lights has been operating in Seattle since 1994 and is aggressively approaching not just lighting sales in the Emerald City but production and event lighting as well.

Kameoka is currently an ensemble member of the improv theatre Unexpected Productions in Seattle. Before joining the Hollywood Lights sales team in Oregon, he resided in Seattle where he was assistant production manager for Northwest Asian American Theatre.
Beverly Inglesby, general manager for Hollywood Lights says, "Brian brings his years of lighting knowledge and experience to the Seattle market and there is no doubt in my mind that his focus, dedication, and awesome customer service values will achieve success."
