Scotty is a landscape architecture student at UCLA. Here in the SMGA offices, Scotty does a bit of everything — from admin and marketing to site analysis and project design assistance. He has a BA from Wesleyan University in Economics and Environmental Studies where his research focused on cap and trade, carbon tax models, and alternative currencies. His work experience is primarily in environmental nonprofit management, most recently as Director of Operations of the Northern California Solar Energy Association. Scotty has a deep love for nature and adventure, with a particular interest in coastlines (as a surfer) and Antarctic climates (inspired by a season of work at McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica).
