In addition to his work on the RACC and Right Brain Initiative boards, Miller has served on the boards of MetroArts, Inc., Business for Culture & the Arts, West Coast Chamber Orchestra, the Friends of the Children Endowment Committee, Oregon Episcopal School and the City of Portland, Mayor’s Economic Cabinet. He is a founding member of Oregon Lawyers for a Sustainable Future and was honored with the Oregon State Bar’s Sustainable Leadership Award in recognition of his volunteer work to move the legal profession to embrace sustainability as a goal.  
Miller chairs Tonkon Torp’s Environmental & Natural Resources Practice Group. His business counsel and litigation practice focuses on complex hazardous waste, air and water pollution matters, as well as forestry and renewable energy.
