With some 10 years of international experience, Miller has lived and traveled in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. He lectures internationally on such themes as moral philosophy, economic development, and social theory, and entrepreneurship. He is frequent guest on radio and has been published in the Washington Times, The Detroit News, the L.A. Daily News, and Real Clear Politics.

Miller has appeared in various video curricula including Doing the Right Thing, Effective Stewardship, and the Birth of Freedom. Much of his current work at Acton involves leading PovertyCure, promoting entrepreneurial solutions to poverty in the developing world.
