About Twinkle Holiday Lighting

Michael Twing is a residential general contractor with over thirty-five years of experience. Creating Twinkle was a culmination of decades long interest in lighting design, both residential,commercial and theatrical. Over the years, he found himself climbing a lot of ladders for his clients. Michael served an apprenticeship under one of the finest restoration and preservation contractors in SF, working on several period homes and structures. After completing his apprenticeship, he was awarded his contractors license in 1992. His first business focused on kitchen and bath design and build (Twing Design & Installation).  From there, Michael founded Urban Vision with a focus on loft conversions. Since moving from SF and setting up shop in Marin, Michael has been involved in building custom homes while honing his skills at exterior hardscape/lighting. Michael has a history of being around airports. He soloed in 1987 and has continued the passion that brought him to the Burning Man event. He was one of the few who established the Black Rock City Municipal Airport in 1999. And has since been instrumental primarily in the build and maintenance of the airport. When not building temporary airports in the middle of nowhere or lighting beautiful homes, he can be found in Mill Valley, CA with Suzanne and their three kids. Michael’s adventurous life and passions include winter sports, motor sports, cooking and travel. Twinkle is committed to the dark sky movement
