Early Life and Family

Miles was born into an American family, which soon relocated to San Antonio, Texas where Miles spent most of his formative years. His mom, Becky Luna, is an Irish-American, who worked as a teacher for most of her career, but is now in retirement and devoted to her Twitter account. As for Miles’s dad, there is not much information on him, other than that he likes to be called Papa Luna due to his Hispanic roots, and that he loves Saturday Night Live. Miles grew up with a younger brother named Dylan, born on 25 April 1994. Fans of Rooster Teeth are familiar with Dylan as the character who inspired Miles’s younger brother, famously depicted as being pushed down the stairs in the Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures episode entitled “A Staircase of Assault.” Dylan is an avid athlete and loves to stream his gaming experiences on Twitch. Miles even joined him one time, and you can see their adventures in the “Mediocre Luna bros” video on Dylan’s channel.

Learning Journey: Cultivating a Passion for Filmmaking, Rooster Teeth, and Beyond

While he was still a high school student, Miles developed an interest in and passion for filmmaking. On his old YouTube channel, you can even see some of his projects from when he was just a teenager, such as “Palapas Promos” and “El Chupacabra Movie Trailer.” These just might be the first pieces of content by Miles. After matriculating from high school, Miles aimed to enroll at the University of Texas, Austin. Initially facing slim odds of acceptance into the Liberal Arts program, he took matters into his own hands by crafting a letter to the Dean of the School of Communications. Proactively, he scheduled a face-to-face meeting with the Dean, a step uncommon among his peers. Confidently introducing himself, he articulated his aspirations and detailed his strategies for realizing them, while also seeking guidance to enhance his chances. Recognizing the initiative demonstrated, the Dean acknowledged that he stood out from his peers. As a result, he received an acceptance letter, a testament to his proactive approach.

Significance of His Time at UT and Making Connections

Upon his acceptance into UT in 2009, Miles encountered several individuals who would become his future colleagues at Rooster Teeth, among them Blaine Gibson, Lindsay Jones, and Kyle Taylor. Miles honed his skills in filmmaking, writing, and production through his involvement with Texas Student TV, where he and his friends created a gaming-focused show called “Video Game Hour Live.” Additionally, alongside Kyle Taylor, he co-hosted “The Noob Corner,” further enriching his experience in the field. From the outset, Miles had a clear vision of his desire to create cartoons. To pursue this passion, he enrolled in an array of classes, encompassing animation, producing, and writing. What was the result of Miles’s search for an ideal niche? He found out he wanted to stay as far away from animation as possible. He found himself disheartened upon discovering his distaste for animation. While he appreciated the gratification of a completed project, he realized he lacked the necessary attention span or discipline for the repetitive nature of drawing. However, he unearthed a newfound passion for writing amidst his exploration.

Career Beginnings: A Rough Start, Rejections and Hope

When Miles graduated in 2012, he was already a relatively formed writer with a clear idea of what he wanted to do and what kind of cartoons he could make. His first application to work as an intern at Nickelodeon didn’t go so well – he didn’t make it out of the first round of the application process. At Cartoon Network, things went a little better, but he still failed to pass the second round of the test. This failure got to him, but then, something unexpected happened. Miles expressed his initial disappointment, stating that he felt heartbroken. However, his perspective shifted when he received an internship offer from Rooster Teeth. Despite realizing it wasn’t his initial desired path, he saw it as an opportunity to gain valuable experience and learn along the way. This realization prompted laughter from both Miles and the audience. He reflected on his newfound appreciation, admitting he had never been happier to experience failure in obtaining internships. For Miles, Rooster Teeth ultimately exceeded his expectations, becoming a dream come true.

Getting Settled at Rooster Teeth

Miles had his start with Rooster Teeth as an assistant writer on the popular science fiction “Red vs. Blue” mini-series during seasons nine and ten, which received new life under Miles’s watchful eye. Not too long after his writing debut, he was promoted by Burnie Burns into a dual writer and director role, which effectively gave him control over the entire “Red vs. Blue” series. Some companies wouldn’t have given the reins to their oldest and most popular franchise to a newbie, but Miles showed right away that he was indeed special.

His Own Creations: RWBY and RWBY Chibi

Alongside Monty Oum and Kerry Shawcross, Mile created the now-cult classic series, “RWBY”. The animated installment revolves around the events on Remnant, a fictional world where the forces of good fight against supernatural beings known as Creatures of Grimm. The show’s protagonists are four young aspiring Hunters at the Beacon Academy – Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang (the beginning letters of their names form the name of the show). “RWBY” is still being produced, as it has turned out to be a smash hit around the world, especially in Japan, where it was dubbed, too. Due to an immense interest in the show’s continuation, Miles and his crew created “RWBY Chibi”, an animated series where RWBY characters appear in chibi form, making jokes and fooling around. Chibi is a Japanese form of caricature, where characters have small limbs and big heads, resembling children.

Other Work at Rooster Teeth

After 2016, Miles is no longer the director and writer of “Red vs. Blue”. He passed the position to colleague Joe Nicolosi, just as Burnie Burns did to him. According to Miles himself, he ‘…reached a point where I felt as though I could no longer take the Reds and Blues to new and interesting places without it feeling forced..’. He elaborates on this matter extensively in the “Red vs. Blue: Goodbye and Hello” post on the Rooster Teeth official website. Since 2015, Miles has been the Head Writer of Animation at the company, with his most recent achievements being “Camp Camp and “Nomad of Nowhere. In his position, every script for every show that comes out of Rooster Teeth has to be approved by him.

Voice Acting

Miles is also a talented voice actor, who managed to bestow his talents upon many of Rooster Teeth’s hit shows. His most significant roles include Jaune Arc in both “RWBY” and “RWBY Chibi”, Cronut and Felic in “Red vs. Blue” and David in “Camp Camp”. All of these characters received significant praise from both fans and critics alike, further reinforcing the notion that Miles is immensely talented at anything even remotely cartoon-related.

Personal Life: Does Miles Luna Have a Girlfriend?

Yes, Miles Luna is in an apparently happy relationship with Eleanor Main, known as “Ellie”. She is a colleague of his at Rooster Teeth, where she is a director, editor, writer and camera operator all at the same time. They tried really hard to keep their relationship under wraps but finally revealed it during a Twitch streaming session. As of now, they are not married and don’t plan on having children any time soon. From 2012 to 2015, he was in a relationship with Arryn Zech, a voice actress who assumed the role of Blake in “RWBY” as well as Emily Grey in “Red vs. Blue”.

Body Measurements: How Tall is Miles Luna?

Miles Luna is 6ft 2in (188 cm) tall; his weight and vital statistics are unknown. He has brown eyes and brown hair. Fans know about his love of lumberjack shirts. Recently, he has taken up jogging and working out in the gym, apparently to improve his quality of life.

What is Miles Luna’s Net Worth?

According to authoritative sources, Miles Luna has a net worth of approximately $1.2 million, as of 2024, accumulated by working even when he was attending UT. Holding the position of Head Writer of Animation allowed him to expand his influence and work on a lot of lucrative projects at Rooster Teeth. Given the fact that he is still young, we can easily see his net worth rise to an eight-figure amount in the near future, if he manages his career wisely.
