Toti (TOe-Tee) is what you make it! They are a rag-tag team of designers, business professionals and entrepreneurs looking for creative ways to bring more light into the world of entertainment, art and place making. They appreciate the profound power that light has to bring people together and began experimenting with functional and artistic applications of light emitting diodes in the summer of 2017. They all came together in 2018 during Louisville Startup Weekend, where they placed second. Their primary artistic concerns are light as a medium, scale, and human interaction. TotiLight is lead by Francisco Cardona and Billy Bryant.
