Dr. Ron Mellado Miller

Science Advisor

Why did I join Humantelligence?

Humantelligence is the rare company that seeks to better the world in a self-perpetuating, self-sustaining manner and has the vision and resources to accomplish that goal. I am involved because I believe Humantelligence has the potential to help many prosper and rise to heights that have been heretofore closed to them and which Humantelligence is opening to them person by person, business by business, and opportunity by opportunity.
