With a background in journalism, Scott served as Communications Director for the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office, Our Oregon, the Defend Oregon Coalition, and the Oregon Legislature’s House Majority Office, where he also served as Chief of Staff. In these roles, Scott built and fostered relationships with key partners, stakeholders, and funders, and was a member of leadership teams that helped raise or protect billions of dollars in funding for Oregon’s schools and critical programs.

Prior to working for advocacy organizations, Scott built a successful career as a journalist. From 2005-2007, he was the Political News Editor for the Portland Mercury, covering City Hall, the Oregon State Legislature, and ballot measure campaigns.

Scott served on the Ethos Board of Directors from 2012 to 2015, and was elected by the board to the positions of Vice President and Chair of the Board. His tenure on the board saw the launch of the annual Ovation Gala, which has become Ethos’ premier fund-raising event.

Like everyone involved in Ethos, he considers music and music education his lifeblood. Scott lives in North Portland with his wife, Christie, and two young sons.
