Miko Lim was born in Malaysia to a Czech-American mother and a Chinese father. At a very early age, he moved to Seattle with his mother, and later would deliver newspapers to his neighbor Kurt Cobain. It was the epicenter of the Grunge Era. During his college years at Pomona in Los Angeles, Lim spent his free time surfing the Pacific and interning at Hollywood studios. His serious interest in photography developed while behind the scenes on movie sets.

His editorial clients include GQ, Esquire, Numero, Self, Shape, Vibe, Fitness, and Vogue.
