Marlin is the Founder and Creative Director of Luma Entertainment, which offers a new genre of art that uses the dark as the canvas and various lighting technologies as the ‘paint’. Marlin is also an author, creative coach, inventor and innovator, and his creative works span multiple fields from a variety of arts: including theatrical productions, writing, toy invention, juggling, and cartooning. In the late 70’s and 80’s Marlin was the first talking juggler to popularize the genre and inspired a whole generation of jugglers who followed his lead. Marlin’s mission is “to create a joyful and evolving world by inspiring others to connect with their own creativity.” See Marlin in his new movie “Christmas Dreams” available for DVD purchase exclusively at Wal-Mart on November 7, 2017.
