About Jeremiah Kearns

Jeremiah lives in Bloomington, Indiana with his wife Brandy where he is a second year M.F.A. Lighting Design Candidate at Indiana University Bloomington. He earned a B.F.A. in Rock Concert Technology from Northern Kentucky University in 2020. He began working with sound equipment at age 10, and has been honing his skills as a lighting and sound technician ever since. His passion is for storytelling. He finds his place ensuring others are heard and seen as they share their stories through performance on the stage.
Jeremiah has a wide range of experience in both design and technical roles. A task oriented approach and attention to detail make his technical work excel, while self expression shines through his design work, giving it a distinct aesthetic founded in strong craft.
When not working on shows or homework, Jeremiah enjoys watching football, constructing legos, and videography.
