Hotel sustainability will be in the national spotlight on television beginning May 26 on Showtime. It is then, at 8 p.m. EST, that sustainability consultant Scott Miller will be featured along with Caesars Entertainment Corp. on Showtime’s nine-part series, “Years of Living Dangerously.” The series was produced by executive producers including James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and five others. The show on which Miller appears was produced by Joel Bach and David Gelber. There are 14 correspondents who conduct interviews during the series. Among them are Lesley Stahl, Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, and Jessica Alba. Miller was interviewed by Jessica Alba.

Miller, who is currently a Manager of Business Development for MindClick Global, took an interesting career path leading up to his appearance on the Showtime series. He grew up in Los Angeles and earned a BA in Economics from the University of California, San Diego. He moved to New York City in 2001 where he began a career in finance at AXA Equitable and later OppenheimerFunds. When Miller watched the Gulf oil explosion on April 20, 2010 on CNN, he was inspired to leave the finance world and dedicate the rest of his life to sustainability. He applied for and was accepted to the Masters in Sustainability program at Columbia University, where he recently graduated.

Early last year Miller applied for and was accepted into the Environmental Defense Fund’s Climate Fellows Program. He was matched with Caesars Entertainment Corp. in early May. Miller soon learned that he and two others with the Climate Fellows Program had been selected to be followed for the Showtime series. Part of his Climate Fellows Program training was filmed by Showtime. In early June Miller moved to Las Vegas where he spent 10 weeks working on energy efficiency projects for Caesars. A good deal of that time, including a presentation he made to Caesars CEO Gary Loveman pitching his energy efficiency project proposals, was also filmed. His interview with Jessica Alba was filmed in Santa Monica, Calif., in September of last year.
