Miles is a native of Alabama, where he studied journalism at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His time in Birmingham included stints as associate editor of The Birmingham News, associate art director of Birmingham magazine, and chief art director of Cooking with Paula Deen. His proudest achievement was helping found that state’s first gay men’s chorus in 2012, and Steel City Men’s Chorus is still going strong. Miles made the leap to San Francisco in 2015, after a varied career in journalism, advertising, art direction and arts management, and he’s thrilled to have found a home among the LEVYdance family. His interests, beyond the arts, include hiking, cooking and baking (sweets especially), drag, design, and travel.
