Zach Miko has taken the fashion world by storm by simply being himself: a tall, normal guy who doesn’t fit the mold of the typical male model. After becoming Target’s first plus-size man to model their clothing, Miko sparked conversations around the world about body acceptance and inclusivity in media and the fashion industry. Seemingly overnight, he’s become the face of the “brawny” man and shown other men and boys that it’s OK to have a waist size larger than 32 inches and no washboard abs.
The Stratford, Connecticut native got his start in entertainment as a comedian, actor, and writer, and by the stroke of luck he was thrust into the national spotlight when he was chosen to model for a Target campaign. Now, he’s adjusting to his newfound celebrity and has made it his mission to help other men become confident and comfortable with themselves, regardless their clothing size or build. When working, he’s a consummate professional who aims to get the job done. On the personal side, Zach Miko is a funny guy with a warm heart and an awesome personality.
