Having graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 1996, Miles began his career at Devonport Management Limited (now Babcock), working on a variety of Yacht, Surface Ship, Submarine, Lifeboat and Design projects. It was this environment that sparked his interest in composites, initially in the DML Composites department, and latterly with the DML RNLI Tamar Lifeboat design team, where he headed up the structural design. Keen to stay involved with composites he then worked for Sealander Marine International working on the complete design of the composite structure for an innovative passenger trimaran amphibious vehicle.

An opportunity to work as the Naval Architect at Princess Yachts International, gave Miles valuable experience of the mass production side of the composites' industry whilst continuing his structural work. Here he developed his awareness of marine industries' legislative requirements, focussing particularly on Recreational craft directive & stability.

Since starting self employment in 2004 (founding M2ED in 2005) Miles has continued to stay at the forefront of the marine composites' industry, with involvement in a variety of projects: Americas' Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, RNLI, and R&D projects. His structural engineering skills are utilised by leading Superyacht glass manufacturer Tilse GmbH, for whom he engineers portlights and windows to Class and Flag requirements. He also assists the company with R&D, and represents Tilse as a member of the technical working group for the new ISO standard for Large Yacht Glazing (ISO 11336).

Far from neglecting his Naval Architectural roots, Miles has had recent involvement in a variety of small craft design projects, in addition to completing numerous stability studies for a large range of workboats, commercial vessels, motor and sailing yachts from 8m to 80m.

Miles lives with his family near Perranporth, Cornwall, where he enjoys sailing, surfing, cycling, and keeping chickens.
