About D. Miles
D. Miles was born and raised in Baltimore Maryland. He is a former United States Air Force Captain. He left that career behind in 2007 to pursue his dreams of owning a business and becoming a model. Little did he know, this career change would lead him to a season in life where he lost almost everything and was living out of his car. He even stayed in a climate controlled storage unit. As he tells it, he had standards and a dream so climate controlled was a must.
“The power of a dream!”
D. Miles persevered by believing in himself, working as a substitute teacher, trying different businesses and eventually borrowing $3,000 to attend modeling school. He finally looked himself in the mirror and admitted, he needed some model coaching. Upon paying the money back in 8 months, he graduated at the top of his modeling class. D. Miles has gone on to have some modeling success.
