Scott and Lindsay McClure Miller live in the Upper Valley six months a year.  They stay in a ‘Yome’ in the woods overlooking a pond, and are beginning to cook some meals over a fire. In the spring and fall, they migrate to California, where they stay in a van with a camper interior that they designed and built complete with a sleeping platform and a kitchen out the back door.  In the winter months, the couple explores the world visiting countries near and far: Indonesia, Cambodia, Greece, Sri Lanka, Mexico, and Nicaragua among others.

Wherever Lindsay and Scott go, they bring their mobile documentary storytelling program, World Story Exchange (www.worldstoryexchange.org), partnering with schools and non-profit organizations to give youth the opportunity to create a short multi-media story using photography, video, and audio recording. The students then exchange their stories with one another to learn about the world from the perspective of other kids. By sharing youth-made stories across cultures, Lindsay and Scott believe the world will become a more peaceful place as the next generation develops an appreciation for the vast cultural diversity of our human family.

In their free time Scott enjoys surfing, nature photography, and playing music, and Lindsay enjoys dancing, creating earth shrines, and face painting. They both love to explore our beautiful planet. Scott is an Eagle Scout and has an MA in international affairs, and Lindsay is a certified wilderness first responder and has a BA in psychology. The couple will be offering a World Story Exchange screening in the Upper Valley in October. Stay tuned for a date and time.
