Miro DiamantéDirectorAccent Indy, a DMC Network Company

Miro was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, where he lived a block away from the famed Tejano singer, Selena. While studying Communication and Business in Northern Indiana, he discovered his love of events as well as his aversion to house linens…ew! In 2017, Miro joined the Accent team and has been showcasing his creative talents ever since. He is known for his attention to detail and has helped curate many award-winning events. In addition to his work in the industry, Miro also juggles performing regularly as his alter-ego Neon, the "sparkling diamond of Indianapolis" drag queen. When not dreaming of table linens or performing drag, you can find Miro walking his sweet dog, Lilly, cleaning up after his mischievous cat, Gerald, or seeking fun in the sun. Miro is an avid reality TV competition show connoisseur and can recite song lyrics for any social situation. He also regularly volunteers and fundraises for local LGBTQIA+ organizations that specialize in helping youth and transgender individuals have access to healthcare, safe housing and financial assistance, and promoted DEI initiatives to not only special events, but communities as a whole.
