Growing up between two cities, a minority in a liberal neighborhood in St. Louis and an outsider in a conservative rural town in northeastern Indiana, five core values drive Scott's passion for local, sustainable organizations: candor, community, diversity, economic justice, and integrity.
Scott received a Bachelor of Science in Business from Indiana University – one of the nation’s top 10 business programs. With a minor in water polo, he swam away to Seattle to pursue an independent career.
His background includes sales and marketing for a privately-owned hotel; business development for two high tech startups (online file sharing and search indexing); and sponsorship development and marketing for the nation’s largest bike club, Cascade Bicycle Club — working with big brands including Clif Bar, Entercom, Group Health, REI, and Whole Foods.
Today, Scott works from a wine-making-motorcycle maintenance-multimedia room in West Seattle. His domain is a lovely 1915 cottage that he shares with his wife, Dr. Jenifer McIntyre – a stormwater PhD rockstar for WSU; 4 laying hens; and their beautiful but temperamental Balinese cat, Loki.
