List of things I’m proficient in, have experience with, and love to do.
The earlier years.
- Studied Business Marketing at Texas State University and graduated in 2015.
- Worked 2 jobs in Sales and 2 jobs in Marketing (a lot of overlap).
- Wanted to build something on my own so I started learning how to start a business.
- The first thing I got into was building websites. I loved building my own and became obsessed with perfecting it.
views on Quora
I wrote 188 answers on quora, most of which are short to medium sized articles. I started in 2017, wrote most of my answers in the first 6 months, then continued to write more spontaneously. I rarely write on Quora today.
This was sparked by my brain fog journey. I shared my own journey, research, and insights around the brain, health, productivity, career, and marketing.
(2017) Built a Brand around Brain Fog
I created a free course, held a workshop and built up an email list of over 400 subscribers.
(2020) Built a Service / Coaching business that has served over 50 clients and customers
After freelancing and traveling the world (South America, Southeast Asia, India), I was forced home when Covid hit in March 2020. With some extra time and energy, I funneled my freelancing into a new business.
Eventually I hired some help and have continued to evolve this business.
My main offering was to help my clients brand and build sustainable marketing ecosystems.
- Marketing strategy
- Branding (Canva)
- Website design (Figma)
- Website dev (WordPress + Elementor)
- Website optimization and handoff
At one point or another I’ve hired or contracted help with admin, social media, content creation, SEO, and web development. I love using Freeup or LinkedIn to hire.
Today, the same business has transformed from HeartFunnels (Systems & Funnels for Heart-centered coaches) to BrandThrive, where my main focus is helping my clients build thriving brands #nomorewanderingbrands.
- Helped 20 clients with branding + marketing ecosystems
- Served over 50 clients / customers
Today, I help about 1 client a month build their brand ecosystem (Identity, Strategy, web). You can see the work here.
(2020 – 2021) Living Brave Coaching
Brand design, web dev, automations, backend, funnels for a brand that did 1M rev in it’s first year (now 2m+ yearly rev).
(2017 – Today) Director of Marketing @ Level Engineering & Architecture
Highest online reputation in CO for Engineering & Architecture firm
Helped them go from 400k yearly rev, 1 location – Over 4m yearly, 8 locations nationwide and growing faster than ever.
I’ve had fun experimenting with different ways to organically grow an engaged following on Instagram. In 2 years, I’ve grown by 565 followers (as of 4/4/22). I have a fairly consistent schedule for my Graphics, quotes, Reels, and experiments.
I love creating content strategies and systems that can run and scale efficiently.
(2021 – Today) ‘The Subtle Art of Not Yelling” Podcast.
A weekly podcast for creatives about the creative process. Learn how to finish what you start, ship your work, and build a business without yelling.
In 2021 our podcast was in the to 10% most shared globally and was heard in 28 countries.
In September 2021, a new friend, Bill Small, and I launched a podcast called The Subtle Art of Not Yelling.
It was partially inspired by our love for marketing, branding, mindset, coaching, art, and the creative process.
It was mostly inspired by our shared repulsion for cringe filled bro marketing tactics that plague today’s online environment.
Bill does the audio engineering and I do the design, branding, web, and promotion side of things. We’re quickly approaching 100 episodes.
Some notable guests include:
- Janis Ozlins
- Eddie Shleyner (Very Good Copy)
- James Martin (Made By James)
- Bardia Razaei (The Stop Drinking Coach)
- Jason Moss
- Bob Doyle (From the Secret)
- Sam Woods
(2022 – Today) The Box – Where projects get finished.
The box was born out of a podcast episode we did around creating a creative container for your work.
It’s a community of creatives that meet twice weekly for 90 minute coworking sessions as well as one coaching (boxing) call per month. We typically have anywhere from 6-12 paying members.

Hi, I’m Miles
Brand Architect and cohost of The Subtle Art of Not Yelling Podcast.
I’m an ex-bro marketer. Like many, I learned all the “bro tactics” and then left marketing altogether after 7 years because it felt cringy and forced.
When I came back, I quickly realized that most people don’t have a marketing problem, they have a branding problem. Marketing won’t work if you have a wandering brand.
Today, I help brand get clear on their story, strategy, and design to craft a simple and scalable brand ecosystem. I specialize in brand identity, strategy, and web design.
I cohost ‘The Subtle Art of Not Yelling‘ with my pal Bill. A weekly podcast for creatives about the creative process, finishing what you start, and building a business without yelling.
We also have a community for creatives and entrepreneurs called The Box, where projects get finished.
I’m from Austin, TX, lived in Denver for 4 years, and am currently seeing if I’m a “beach guy” in Hermosa Beach, CA.
Here are some websites I've built
Some are for my own businesses/projects, some are for clients. Some are under a “temporary” domain as they’ve either been moved to their hosting, or have been paused for one reason or another.
