Kostya Kimlat is known as “the business magician” — a world-renowned speaker, entertainer and expert in how to Think Like A Magician™. Kostya has presented his sophisticated brand of magic for thinking audiences in over 200 cities on 5 continents.

In 2006, Kostya was the youngest magician to appear on the cover of MAGIC Magazine — a leading industry publication. As an entrepreneur, Kostya founded See Magic Live, which trains and books magicians for events across the country.
