Strategist, publicist, marketer, social entrepreneur, nonprofit leader. Scott has 20+ years of experience in various culture-shaping (and sometimes suffocating) worlds — advertising, media, interactive design, photography, technology, television, fashion… and social impact. Some years ago, catalyzed by 9/11 and a spiritual and social awakening, he broke the trance of a cynical consumer culture and started applying his corporate-honed skills to social impact. He has an insatiable interest in transforming failed systems, in big ideas and the behaviors that drive people, what resonates with them, and how to engage them. He managed media for the 2003 NY visit of the Dalai Lama, then founded Antidote Collective in 2004. He’s since worked with dozens of innovative nonprofits, foundations, social entrepreneurs and thinkers at the intersection of progressive issues, media, conscious business and big ideas. He also founded BEAHIVE, Re>Think Local, Social Venture Institute / Hudson Valley and was a producer of TEDxLongDock.
