At the urging of his father, real estate builder Jacob Miller, he enrolled in the New York Homeopathic College and was awarded his medical degree by William Cullen Bryant in 1863. Miller practiced for a year as surgeon aboard the Black Ball Line's Harvest Queen (1863-4) from New York to Liverpool, England.
He later studied art with Adolph Lier at the Royal Bavarian Academy (1867), before returning to the United States.

Miller published a work on art, "Philosophy of Art in America," in 1885 under the nom de plume Carl de Muldor.
