Coverboy: Miles

Miles is hoping for a career in modeling, loves filet mignon and wants more disposable income.

Miles is loving his summer in Washington, completing two public-relations internships. The 21-year-old lives with his sister in D.C., but is about to start his senior year at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Miles originally started college at East Carolina University on a swimming scholarship, but had to give up the sport due to seizures. He was later diagnosed with epilepsy. But he’s keeping a positive attitude and focusing on the road ahead, which includes a career in modeling. Miles enjoys working out, and stretching his art muscles — he’s a lover of painting, sculpture and photography.
