About Us


Scientific Consulting Services International and The Tuva Trader are home-based (and sometimes in Tuva) business' run by Devan Miller and his partner Christine who also runs a nutrition and wellness counseling service. We run Tuva Trader and Scs-International from a old converted barn on the beautiful North Olympic Peninsula, in Washington state. We work to connect people with the rich cultural heritage and music of the Tuvan people by booking concerts here in the US and organizing tours for small groups in Tuva

We are located in Port Angeles, Washington in the United States.

Science, Art and Culture have always been great and interconnected passions of mine. As Scs-International develops we hope to connect art, science, ecology and culture in new and innovative ways.

We take great efforts to bring you authentic and unique items from Tuva, often handmade by people who really appreciate the support for their work and adding to their income.  We are also the exclusive source for some terrific Richard Feynman items -- whose curiosity made us ask "Whatever happened to Tannu Tuva? And we are a store that offers science and science-art materials and media.

A brief history of The Tuva Trader and Scs-International

The Tuva Trader was created by Ralph Leighton as the merchandising arm of Friends of Tuva, and I am proud to have taken over the operation.


SCS International was began by Eric Slone (who passed away in December 2003) and Rebecca Slone in 1991. Over the years, their business grew from scientific consulting and software development to include many other areas of interest including running The Tuva Trader for many years.


Devan Miller is the current owner/director at The Tuva Trader and Scs-International.

We look forward to serving you,
