ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Lewis Miller was born and raised in California farm country amid olive, almond, and peach orchards, and developed a respect for nature early on. At eighteen, he moved to Seattle where he studied horticulture and landscape design and, after seven years of successfully pursuing his interests in design, flowers, and event planning, Lewis moved to New York, where he worked for one of the city's top floral boutiques. In March of 2002, his vision of a country life in a metropolitan setting inspired him to create Lewis Miller Design. Since striking out on his own, Lewis has created stunning floral designs for the Met, the Whitney, Tiffany, Ferragamo, Versace, Viktor & Rolf, and Bergdorf Goodman, among others. In 2016, Miller invented the Flower Flash—a guerrilla flower installation—and has created more than 90 since.
