I grew up in Huntingdon Valley, PA, a small town near Philadelphia. Throughout my childhood I was extremely active in sports including soccer, swimming, and baseball. In high school, I earned 11 varsity letters in these sports and was an all-regional athlete. I was recruited by a number of smaller, Division-1AA colleges but always lacked the size to earn a scholarship at a Division-1 school. When I graduated high school, I was 135 pounds soaking wet!
Deciding to pursue academics over athletics in college, I chose to attend Penn State University’s Scheyer Honors Program. I graduated as valedictorian with degrees in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Economics. Although I was extremely focused on academics, there was something missing. I missed the training involved with athletics so as a freshman one of my roommates introduced me to the weight room. I was instantly hooked. Although I lived on cold cereal, by the time I graduated I had a well-built, 175-pound frame and had learned a lot about proper training. After I graduated, my Biochemistry background allowed me to perform my own research and investigation into proper nutrition and supplementation, which really helped me make gains. In 2002, a year after I graduated, I was encouraged by a bodybuilder at my gym to compete. I won the overall novice division at my first show and was instantly hooked once again. Fourteen months later I won my pro card at my second competition, the 2003 OCB Charm City Classic.
On April 3, 2004, I was test judging at an OCB show when this cute Southern girl tapped me on my shoulder and began talking to me. I knew immediately there was something special about this person (and 20 months later I was engaged to Stephanie Brumfield!). Steph prepped for her first show while I prepped for my first pro show in 2005. After winning her pro card at her first show, it turns out that we eventually competed together at the 2005 IFPA American States Pro show where she took first and I took second.
Stephanie and I were married on October 14, 2006 in Danville, VA and now reside in Arlington, VA. Currently I am a manager at an economic consulting firm and co-owner/founder of Core Nutritionals, and Steph owns her own personal training business.We are looking to open our own training studio in 2010 in Arlington, VA and continue to run ÒTeam MillerÓ (nutritional, training, and competition prep programs and workshops). We are also proud to be USP LabsÕ sponsored athletes.
