About Miral Kotb - While pursuing her degree in computer science at Columbia University, Kotb, a native of Houston, TX, also studied dance at Barnard College. After graduation, she was hired as a software engineer at Bloomberg, LP, where she worked for seven years. In 2009, while attending an Apple conference, the initial idea behind iLuminate emerged: the ability to wirelessly control lights on dancers’ bodies from the palm of your hand. Miral combined her two passions of computer coding and choreography to create the patented iLuminate technology, the tool that enables performers, choreographers, engineers, technicians, stylists, and artistic directors to produce explosive performances with customized wireless lighting programs. In the summer of 2011, America chose the dance-in-the-dark sensation as one of the top finalists on America's Got Talent. Since then, Kotb’s unprecedented technology, programming, and artistic direction have catapulted iLuminate into a phenomenon that mesmerizes audiences across the globe.
