Hi. I am Scott. You have stumbled across my personal website. Probably by mistake no doubt.
I get the opportunity to do what I love every single day. Through my company I work with non profits and social enterprise businesses helping them to increase their effectiveness. Additionally, on the boards and councils I am on I get to approach things from a different angle. In Santa Ana, I help lead a couple community based efforts geared towards bringing people together and inspiring creative, local solutions. My family is my number one priority and our family mission statement is the basis on which we make all of our decisions. Consider this disclosure. I occasionally receive things from authors, publishers, companies, etc and when I like them will let you know. If I do not like them, I will tell you that too. I own a small consulting firm that helps social enterprises, non profits and a few businesses I respect with strategy and interactive marketing. If someone has paid me or I have advised them pro bono, and I talk about them here, I will let you know.
Please know that my thoughts are always my own, and do not represent any company, organization or other entity that I am connected to, whether by contract or personal affiliation.
Enough of all that. Here is a professional search optimized bio.
