In 2006, Stone Poole merged her passion for design with her journalism background to author “Ask Mi-Ling! When You Want the Truth About Decorating.“

Then in 2008, she produced and hosted Mi-Ling’s Comfort Zone, an award winning lifestyles and decorating radio show which aired Sundays, from noon to 1 p.m. on Newsradio 1000 KTOK-AM in Oklahoma City until August of 2010.

Mi-Ling’s cost-saving decorating and lifestyle tips as well as her gift-giving advice earned her regular segments as a lifestyle contributor for KWTV News9 (CBS), in Oklahoma City. She has also appeared on numerous morning shows throughout the country.
Stone Poole grew up in the Twin Cities with some of the major players in the music industry. Her friendship with “pop icon” Prince and others from the “Minneapolis Sound” inspired her to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. In 1991, she formed Exact Image Entertainment Group and focused on booking and promoting celebrity speakers and entertainers. Her first celebrity client was actor Esther Rolle, best known for her portrayal of Florida Evans on the hit television show Good Times. She also worked with members of the King family, actor Michael Beach, Puff Daddy (Diddy) on The No Way Out Tour, and numerous other speakers and celebrities.
One of the highlights of her career was working with filmmaker Kevin Willmott as associate producer on Ninth Street, an independent film featuring Martin Sheen and Isaac Hayes. The film later won an Independent Film Channel Award.
In 2016, you can see Mi-Ling in her first speaking role as a grand jury forewoman in the upcoming film “The Scent of Rain and Lightning,” directed by Blake Robbins. She was also a featured background actor in “America’s Biggest Serial Killer, Gosnell,” Directed by Nick Searcy.
After graduating from the University of Kansas with a bachelor’s degree in journalism, Mi-Ling worked as a freelance writer, advertising executive, a university administrator and a radio promotions director. In 2001, she earned her master’s degree with an emphasis in public relations and communications from Oklahoma City University. She is married to her husband of 32 years and has two children.
