Scott participates in so many different community and national activities
that it is difficult to keep track of everything he is doing. He is
always ready and able to write or speak publicly to advocate for AAC
users or to educate professionals and service providers. On the national
scene, he has participated as a panelist at CSUN's
annual convention, presented a poster session at the ISAAC's
bi-ennial conference and participated as an invited guest at the Pittsburgh
Employment Conference among other important events. He is currently
on the planning committee for a similar conference on the west coast:
Alternative Communication Employment Conference.
Scott obtained his Associate's Degree in Business in 1996 and began
doing data entry for the Washington State Liquor Control Board. A later
internship with Washington State Congressman John Miller turned into
a permanent position that lasted until Congressman Miller retired in
1992. He has been a Prentke-Romich
ambassador, and is currently being profiled on their website. See what

In September 2005, Scott began his business named Palmtree Enterprises
to assist people with their difficulties in AAC, AT and Disability Awareness.
In that same month, the Mukilteo School District offered him a 9 month
contract for the 05-06 school year. Presently, the District renewed
the contract for the coming school year. In addition, Parkland Elementary
in Shoreline is offering Palmtree Enterprises 5 month contract. He has
lectured both in person and online to students at the University of
Washington. Recently, he has been a strong advocate for continued DSHS
funding for AAC devices in Washington State.
He is shown in this video clip giving persuasive testimony at a public

Scott is known as hard working, spending many hours producing just
the right speech. But he has also demonstrated his ability to speak
extemporaneously with great effect, whether to small groups of university
students or large audiences at conferences. Amidst all this work, Scott
finds time to pursue his many hobbies, including computers, videos,
movies and anything to do with Star Trek.
