Nice to meet you.

Hello, I'm Miles, and I'm a passionate creator. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, and I'm driven to connect with the world by sharing unique perspectives through my art. I believe that art has the power to bring people together and create positive change in the world. As a multi-faceted, young Black man, I've overcome many challenges, and I'm proud to have achieved great things, including publishing a book and partnering with The Columbus Foundation and the Columbus Metropolitan Library. Partnering with organizations such as Blockfort, Easton, and Gravity as an award-winning artist and community member. I've also had the honor of being recognized for my artistic talents by earning awards such as the highest achieving award in the Ohio Governor's art show, a Scholastic National Gold Key Portfolio Award, and the Twenty under Twenty award from the City of Columbus. My goal is to use these achievements as stepping stones to hone my craft further and find even more impactful ways to create change. I'm excited to continue on this path and to leave the world a better place than when I entered it. Thank you for joining me on this journey.
