Scott currently serves as a White House Presidential Innovation Fellow, where he's part of an effort to help the Federal government become more innovative and human-centered. Prior to joining the Presidential Innovation Fellowship, he co-led a social innovation and design consulting agency based in New York called Community by Design, that delivered human-centric concepts at the intersection of design thinking, civic innovation practices, and community organizing. Some of these projects included co-creating a social impact institute at Harvard University focused on improving the public education system, devising a strategic plan with the City of New York that bridged the technology industry with underserved communities, and developing strategic programming within the United Nations on sustainable tourism practices. Additionally, Scott worked at the award-winning design agency IDEO for 6 years as an organizational and systems designer. This work focused on helping organizations of all shapes, sizes, and industries transform themselves into more design-led and innovative organizations. In his spare time, Scott guest lectures at NYU and Parsons on topics such as: Design Thinking for Social Impact, Design Research, and Storytelling.
