Early life

Always in the summertime, when I was off school I'd go up to the shop almost every day and I'd just kind of hang out at the shop there and interact with all the crew guys and ride around all the pit equipment around the parking lot and stuff like that. It was fun being there. The crew guys were fun to hang out with always and it was cool to be around the race team.[4]

At a young age, Milner would test and consult amateur racing game mods, whom of which are now the founders of Slightly Mad Studios.[5]
