Miller is a painter, violinist and photographer. He began taking pictures in the Navy and since 1968 as a street photographer, has taken around 350,000 black and white photos with film, mostly of Laguna and its people. Add in the color film, and he’s taken a half million film photos. He has been scanning and posting his photos on Facebook for the past 10 years and has become as he calls it, a contemporary historian of Laguna Beach.

As an artist, he has painted every day for 28 years and is nearing 20,000 pieces. And has been an exhibitor at the Sawdust Festival since 1971. He grew up in Long Beach where his parents had him take private violin lessons. He has accompanied numerous singers at Sawdust and has played the Coach House more than 30 times with his stage partners and band The Moon Police. He has resided with his wife, Becky, in their little house on Coast Highway for the past 43 years, and they have two adult boys.
