Co-Founder, Vice-President, Curriculum Developer
Born and raised in Southern California, Scott has studied and observed the weather since childhood. After receiving an undergraduate degree in finance from Cal Poly Pomona in 1994, he worked as an underwriter and programmer for ten years. Realizing the importance of following his life-long passion, he began his graduate work in atmospheric science at the University of California, Irvine in 2004. As a PhD candidate, Scott studies the relation between atmospheric boundary layer turbulence and near surface winds. An amateur weather observer and forecaster, Scott has witnessed the change in weather and climate across the globe. Galvanized by reports of deteriorating ecosystems across the globe, he is urged to communicate the science to the public. Education, in his opinion, is the most powerful weapon against anthropogenic climate change. Children, when educated about their environment, are more open to changing the non-sustainable habits we as a society have adopted. Scott has given countless weather and climate talks at elementary schools and children's events across Southern California.
