Hi! I’m Lesley, the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of This is Lester. 


My early career and education at Canada’s leading school for Interior Design set me up to understand the psychology of space, color and our emotional connection through art & design. At 24 I made my way to New York City armed with a hockey bag of clothes, a pocket’s worth of cash and a crazy dream that anything was possible. Within six months, working for a small company doing huge live concerts & tours, I was Art Directing the Set Design at venues like Madison Square Garden & Radio City Music Hall (Um, wow - they put a lot of trust in me!). Five years later, I launched This is Lester organically with the intention that I would create exceptional, artful and deeply felt experiences that move people.


In my 20-year career, I have worked as a Set Designer for Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, on SNL, designed and produced VIP experiences for the NFL Super Bowl Concert Series, The Police’s last tour (ever), Madonna, J-Lo & Jay-Z, on nationally televised concerts on ABC & NBC, streamed series & virtual events for GQ and Stella Artois, and most humbly my work with mission-driven projects from One Earth Global Concert to the United Nations global campaign on sustainability. Additionally, I’m a guest speaker with youth at Universities, the YMCA, and inner city-arts programs on the possibilities of their future in the creative arts. As a strategic thinker with a digitally-driven mindset, I understand the power of connection. My work has generated millions of impressions, been turned into permanent installations, and has even been auctioned for charity.
