Mr. Miller also represents Earth Day Network to the Energy Action Coalition, where they are implementing the Campus Climate Challenge’s model of success on 1,000 college campuses into the K-12 setting. Prior to joining Earth Day Network in 2006, he taught with the Center for Teaching Peace in D.C. schools, where he is a licensed teacher. Additionally, Mr. Miller was the Program Coordinator at Nonviolence International working to create educational materials for students and facilitating an international conference on conflict resolution in Bethlehem, Palestine. He received his BA in both Psychology and Philosophy from The College of William and Mary, and earned two Master’s Degrees in International Peace and Conflict Resolution (MA) and Education (Secondary Social Studies concentration, MAT) from American University.

He adds that he loves to fight climate change with his bicycle, “the most efficient machine ever created.”
