At an early age, Milan was introduced to jazz music through his parents. As early as the age of five, Milan started playing the accordion. Around the age of seven, he made the switch to the instrument still closest to his heart, the piano. He studied at the MaGo Academy with classical pianists Arthur Vuye and Nicolas Callot. In 2016, he decided to study at De! Kunsthumaniora in Antwerp to continue his secondary studies, with Jazz Piano as his main instrument. Ewout Pierreux became his teacher for two years. During his time at this school, he started playing in a band and began giving concerts. After graduating from De! Kunsthumaniora, he was admitted to the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp with Erik Vermeulen as principal study teacher. During his time at the conservatory, he had the opportunity to take lessons and masterclasses and play with many prominent Belgian and international jazz musicians. In June 2022, he graduated from the conservatoire with highest distinction.

Today, Milan is a much sought-after musician in and around Antwerp and Belgium. He is bandleader of his own pianotrio and co-leader of several other bands. In 2022, Milan won second place in the '7 Virtual Jazz Club' competition with the band Cobalt Trio.

In 2023, Milan was selected to be part of 'De Twintigers 2023', a selection of ten young, promising musicians selected by public broadcaster Klara (VRT).
