"I was born in Bethesda Maryland and adopted at 6 months of age by John & Daisy Myles. Was the second edition to their family, the first was my sister Matrona. Both of my parents were educators in the Maryland school system, My father was a principal at Gwynn Park Jr & Sr. High and my mother was a teacher at Sligo Jr. High. They both retired from the school system after 33 years of service but always emphasized the importance of giving back to the community. I attend St. John's College HS ( A military Academy) and Graduated from Hampton Institute in Virginia with a degree in Physics. I entered the military after graduating and served 6 years in the U.S. Army as a Military Intelligence Officer. Upon leaving the Army as a Captain, I began to pursue a career utilizing my talents and degree. I worked to Corning Inc. in Wilmington NC as a Senior Process/Project Engineer and cooperate troubleshooter. After 14 years with Corning I switched career and went to work for Diamler-Chrysler in St. Louis Missouri in the Truck Division until I received a call 5 years later to work for Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Kentucky where I am currently employed. Along the way I married Lynda Colvin, my wife of 22 years. We have three daughters Denise, Tiana and Mikka and 4 grandchildren.
