Ambassador Miller has served as senior regional security officer, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2000-2003), assistant special agent in charge, diplomatic security service (DSS), Boston field office, Boston, Massachusetts (1998-2000) and senior regional security officer, Gaborone, Botswana (1995-1998).
He served in DSS headquarters in Washington (1994 – 95) and field offices in Miami (1990 – 93) and San Francisco (1987 – 88).
He was assistant RSO in San Salvador, El Salvador (1988 – 90). He served as an officer in the US marine corps (1981-1984) and US marine corps reserve (1985-1992).
Miller earned a BA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1981 and graduated from the US Marine Corps Command and Staff College, Quantico, Virginia in 1994, according to the website of US Department of State.
