Owner Todd Peace founded INARAY back in 2002. He mixes his depth of design knowledge with a background in Horticulture to create outdoor rooms that come alive at night. His affinity for refining processes and making things run well has enabled INARAY to grow and evolve through the years. When Todd isn’t meeting with clients, architects and builders, you might find him at a nearby golf course perfecting his swing alongside friends. He and his wife, Heidi, reside in Westham with their daughter Kinsley.
Scott has been with INARAY Design Group for over 6 years. If you have the opportunity to work with him as your designer, you will be greeted with a warm smile and friendly disposition. His background in Physics and Engineering compels him to bring a level of excellence and refined detail to each design. When Scott is not working, you can find him cheering from the sidelines at his daughter’s volleyball tournaments, gardening in his backyard, and wishing he had more time to go fishing.
Amanda was welcomed onboard in June 2014 and her role has evolved during her time at INARAY. As chief of “Company Culture and Employee Success” she aims to make every team member feel welcome, heard and appreciated. During INARAY’s holiday lighting season, you’ll find her designing personalized holiday lighting scenes for homes throughout Richmond. Her attention to detail and aptitude for overseeing company procedures continues to help INARAY run well year round. As a seasoned world traveler, Amanda has walked the streets of Italy, France, Germany, Holland, China, Ukraine and Nicaragua. Though her globetrotting has settled down for now, she looks forward to traveling in the years to come alongside her husband Peter, and their daughter Ruby, who they welcomed in Spring 2017.
As INARAY’s expansion into lighting controls and audio design grows, we’ve welcomed seasoned professional Greg Margeson on board. With decades of experience behind him, Greg delivers a visionaries touch and exemplary execution to audio and lighting control design. His most recent role was territory manager for world class brands like Lutron and Sonance in Virginia and Washington DC. He attended VCU and has a musical background which landed him a spot with the Richmond Philharmonic in the past. When Greg isn’t working, his time is filled spending time with his wife and kids, searching for the perfect cup of coffee and adding
unique vintage pieces to his wardrobe.
INARAY welcomed Project Manager, Glenn Purvis, to the team in June 2017. At Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), he studied Communications, Marketing & Management. It is with this background and his experience in the lighting control industry that brought Glenn to join our growing team. He is an avid hiker and a seasoned outdoorsman. When asked what inspires him, Glenn said, “My wife inspires me to be a better person and the best dad I can be.” When Glenn isn’t at the office you might find him investing his time into music and movies, or finding the next best spot to play a round of pinball. Glenn’s resourcefulness, friendly demeanor and eye for detail make him a great dad and husband, and a valuable part of Inaray’s team.

Joining the team in fall 2017, Daniel has quickly become an integral part of INARAY’s team. His educational background in information technology mixed with keen abilities in problem solving strengthens and supports the team in many diverse ways. His affinity for a wide spectrum of music includes extreme metal to soothing jazz. Collecting vinyl records, learning how to speak different languages (specifically Norwegian) and sharpening his skills on the bass are just a few things you may find Daniel doing outside the office. Our youngest designer, Daniel offers a fresh approach to meeting your lighting needs and understands your desire to create a space both alive and inviting to enjoy at night.
In late 2017, Denise came on board as INARAY’s newest book keeper. She enjoys the relaxed and fun company culture at work and fits well in her role with her strengths of responsibility, discipline and consistency. Growing up in Brazil for the first 26 years of her life, she remembers fondly the trips she would take with her family each year to Brazil’s coastline. She misses the Brazilian pizza the most, but has come to enjoy American pizza as well! While not at work, you might find Denise catching up on Netflix shows with her husband Trevor, and organizing things around her house. She loves country music (specifically Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood) and 90’s alternative rock. She moved to Virginia from Miami Beach a couple of years ago and has been a wonderful addition to the team.
Chelsea came on board during the thick of our holiday lighting season in 2018 and has been a saving grace during a season of tremendous growth. Her positive and personable approach to everything at work (and life!) has benefitted our client experience from day one. Her educational background involves a degree in Business Administration, where her favorite class was in public speaking. While she’s not at the office, you may find her kicking butt at Burn Boot Camp, enjoying Sunday brunch at Can Can, or sipping local brews with friends at The Veil Brewery Co. A self-proclaimed book worm, you might also find her nestled in a comfortable spot at a local park digging into the next book on her list. Although there are many things she enjoys about working for INARAY, the strong company culture and team comradery are among her favorite.
A seasoned leader on INARAY’s team, Henry Beecroft came on the scene in November 2015. As a nationally registered EMT, he volunteered for the Hanover Fire EMS Dept. after high school and continues to volunteer his time when he’s not working. With an affinity for life in the River City, he savors the local eats of The Hill Café, mountain biking, venturing around Belle Isle and enjoying Hardywood Brewery’s Cream Ale. Among all of his outdoor activities, Henry is probably the fondest of snowboarding. One day he hopes to travel to Mont Tremblant, Canada, to experience the elevation and thrills its slopes offer. Through the year, his methodical and detail oriented disposition keeps INARAY’s Audio/Video projects and Holiday Lighting installations running proficiently. He likes that he’s able to call the people he works with friends, and enjoys the trust and autonomy working for INARAY provides.
Griffin joined INARAY’s team in early 2018 and has been a key player in helping our clients experience seamless and detail-oriented installations. He grew up in Richmond, attending VCU (Go Rams!) for his undergrad with a focus in Homeland Security. During his down time, he enjoys playing volleyball at local volleyball club, RVC, fishing and hiking. A day of adventuring outside with his dog, Floyd, is a day well spent in his book. Although Griffin enjoys the benefits of nature during outdoor lighting installs, INARAY’s expansion into home media has allowed him to use his technical background in this rapidly growing area. His travels may have led him to places like Vermont and Alaska, but you’ll find him content here, enjoying everything Richmond has to offer – all the way to his local favorite grilled cheese pub, Home Sweet Home.
