Scott is a PhD candidate in the department of Political Science at the University of California Irvine. He currently does work on the social character of memory and how narratives of the past create and reinforce identities of the present. He also does research on games, memory, organizational/institutional formation, and the construction of narratives.
In addition to his day job, Scott writes stuff for the websites Rentagamemaster.com and Terriblegamers.com about games and gaming culture. In a previous incarnation of his life, he was involved in the video game industry where he worked on games like Field Commander (IGN 2006 Strategy Game of the Year) and Everquest 2.
Scott is a father of one and plays games. Lots of games. He is currently running a DnD4e campaign and an hybrid Only War campaign that will, if the gods are willing, be developed into a podcast, which you should be able to find Thac0artists.com.
