Who Am I?
Hi! I’m Scott.
I’m a travel junkie, photoholic, and freelance writer currently based in Syracuse, New York!
For three seasons of the year, I spend my days gallivanting around upstate New York, haunting the shores of Lake Ontario, or getting lost somewhere in the Ithaca gorges and the ADK. For that other season, I spend my time bundled up inside and wondering why I live here.
I have a degree in English and Creative Writing from Huntingdon College, located in Montgomery, AL — but don’t let the piece of paper fool you. I’m all about the nonsensical literature that academics aren’t too fond of. I grew up on fairy tales, science fiction, fantasy, and all kinds of myths and folklore. It’s still what I read, and it often finds a way to work itself into the articles and short stories I write.
Since leaving Alabama, I’ve lived in most states in the Southeastern US. Those I haven’t lived in, I’ve passed through enough to be intimately familiar with their charm. I’ve also spent time in Alaska, Europe, and Canada and like to travel on the cheap when I can . . . so that I can travel more somewhere down the road.
In addition, I’m an avid photographer and worked as a professional portrait photographer for several years before switching into landscapes and written word. I never had the patience to learn to draw, so photography is my gateway to the great outdoors. You’ll rarely see me exploring without a camera in my hand.
