Jeremy Kumin

JEREMY KUMIN (Lighting Designer)  has designed the lighting for plays, musicals, opera, dance, video, fashion shows, and many other events.  Starting with a BA in Drama from Duke, he went on to get an MFA from Brandeis in Lighting Design, and then to nearly 2 decades of freelance design work based in New York City.  He designed and programmed Off Broadway productions, tours, and assisted on Broadway shows, but one of the highlights for him was any opportunity to collaborate on lighting dance, which came to include stints with the American Indian Dance Theater, Carlota Santana, Nai-Ni Chen, Laura Dean, and Amanda Selwyn/Notes In Motion.

Through his company Tri-Luminary, Inc. he applied his design and production management skills to numerous special events in NYC from 1999 to 2007. For the decade following that he was handing North American Sales/Marketing for a lighting manufacturer based in Australia. It was during that phase, he was able to return to Durham and reestablish connection with this community.  Jeremy works now as a freelance lighting designer/programmer in NC, and a consultant on marketing and product development for a select group of manufacturers in the entertainment technology field.  An article he wrote was recently published in the Winter 2019 issue of Protocol Magazine.
