On Reid Miles

“Throughout his years in New York, Miles worked for diverse clients, including Columbia Records, the New York Herald Tribune, GQ. Warhol once pleaded on his behalf with Margaret Hockaday, the pioneering founder of Hockaday Associates, a Madison Avenue advertising agency with a reputation for inventive, playful, and stylish work. Miles got the gig, which lasted until he ‘slipped off in a client meeting.’ He recalled: ‘I’m no politician. New York taught me to scream, that’s its claim to fame.”‘
