Hi, I'm Scott, a creative director and design multi-instrumentalist living in Austin, Texas. I love leveraging my skills to create content and experiences for brands that truly resonates with users. My early career was focused on enabling positive endeavors in non-profits, politics, and education. Currently, I work as the Creative Director for the Hideaway Report, where I manage a team of travel content and marketing designers.

I can take the lead on developing and organizing a project, but I'm just as comfortable jumping into production. I have both designed and coded multiple high traffic websites, built large digital marketing campaigns, shot and edited photo/video for national publications and have written over 40 articles for the web.
