Owner & President
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Anthony developed an interest in music and lighting design from an early age. He was a talented DJ in his early years and went on to graduate from New York’s famous Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in jewelry design. He then proudly served as a master gemologist at the internationally renowned, Gemological Institute of America.
Inspired by art, music, travel and life’s many experiences, he founded Pegasus Productions in the mid-1980’s. He states, “I create what cannot be captured in words, song and photographs. My life’s path is to design and by designing, I create.”

Head of Production
Born and raised in the “Valley of the Sun” in Phoenix Arizona, Shawn received a degree in theatrical lighting design at the University of Arizona and subsequently followed his dreams to the epicenter of special events, the Big Apple.
New York City quickly afforded an already talented Shawn, the inspiration and the opportunities to not only build a career in theatrical lighting but to bridge his skills into event lighting. He states, “My passion is design and my creativity borders on obsession” In fact, his passion for creativity led him to be a self-taught photographer who is solely credited for the images on our website.
Presently, Shawn proudly serves on the leadership team of Pegasus Productions, adding value to its creative vault. He continues to build his portfolio of impressive and large scale events in NYC’s most notable venues while also furthering his education in the newest technology on the market.
Director of Operations & Client Relations
Born in NYC and raised in Westchester, Liz has been inspired by art and design throughout her life. She navigated the northeast taking courses at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology and the Rhode Island School of Design before settling at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where she received a diploma in ceramic and mixed media sculptures along with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at Tufts University.
Liz rapidly returned to NYC and using her creativity and strong interpersonal skills, began to build a solid history of projects including permanent architectural lighting. Liz states, “Art is my life, it inspires me and it defines me. The greatest satisfaction in designing the lighting for an event is fully understanding the clients vision, then making that vision come to life beyond their expectations.”
Liz was drawn to Pegasus Productions because of their notoriety in the lighting and special events industry as “collaborators.” She finds it extremely motivating to be part of a leadership team where she has carte blanche on ideas and more importantly, access to a pool of highly talented lighting designers and technicians along with access to both legacy and cutting edge technology. She enjoys experimenting with new and old technology to create unique and extraordinary effects.
