Birth of Venice, California

Hello. My name is Scott. I like a good story. Engaging and simple. Movies, Novels, Poems. The news tells us stories. Our beliefs are informed by sacred stories. Stories change our minds or solidify what we already know.

I'm a writer based in Seattle, WA. I write fiction and poetry. I also write marketing and ad copy. Or, very short stories. Working within the brand, I thrive on the challenge to find the big idea, the strategy behind the content. What are the compelling, essential parts to the story? What is the one kernel, the pearl, we want readers to take with them? Where is that point of connection?

Stories are vital to who we are. We tell them to share ourselves, to be heard; to listen to others and acknowledge their experience; to feel connected.

This is my voice. This is my perspective.

Other less serious stuff: I used to be a saucier. My butter sauces were the best. Perhaps that’s why I’m now allergic to dairy. I can play any position on the soccer pitch well. Sometimes I ride a scooter with a gold fleck helmet. Other times, I like to snap photos on my Grandmother's Canon TX from the '60's. Someday, I’ll return to Valhalla. Which in my case is pre-2005 Ballard, WA.
