Hello, I’m Eric Miller. I moved to Amarillo in 1997 with every intention of being Mr. Mom. But, this job at the Amarillo Convention & Visitor Council found me, and I’m glad it did. Amarillo is full of proud residents who are ready to help tell the story of this independent city. So, from local news to national and international outlets, being the community's spokesperson is a daunting task. But, I love it, and I take the responsibility very seriously. I used to hear people say they stopped in Amarillo on the way to another destination. More and more, now, I hear from people who stop in Amarillo and really take the time to look around. That makes my day! Better still, my colleagues are among the most experienced in the business and the friendliest people I have worked with. I know you’ll say the same thing after getting to know all of us and the city we represent!
