Scott spent 23 years as a television reporter, 16 of them covering the environment. As the media changed, he felt a need to work towards a broader impact, which brought him to lead Resource Media in 2002. Here he has learned the value of working across issue silos and building real, non-transactional relationships with communities outside the deep green base. In 2009 Scott joined the Russell Family Foundation where he helped review and refocus environmental grantmaking. He rejoined Resource Media as President in 2012.
