Scott followed a love of auto racing to a degree in Automotive Engineering from England’s Loughborough University. This led to work designing cars that won the Indy 500 and Indycar championship, as well as the design of racing shock absorbers, vehicle dynamics simulation software, data acquisition and telemetry, Baja off-road trophy trucks, and composite aircraft. In 2002, he helped a new Indycar manufacturer setup a state of the art manufacturing facility incorporating carbon fiber autoclaves, rapid prototyping, and 3 and 5 axis machining, all while simultaneously designing a car under near-impossible time constraints. And then did it all again in 2009 with a new US-based Formula 1 team.
Along the way, an interest in furniture design led to the founding of Housefish, a Denver-based furniture design and manufacturing studio dedicated to combining advanced manufacturing techniques and careful hand craft to produce innovative, evocative, environmentally responsible furniture in the US.
Scott also cofounded Westwood Design, an influential juvenile furniture manufacturer, and has done design work for several major furniture manufacturers.
Scott’s work has been exhibited at ICFF in New York, Ventura Lambrate in Milan, is in the permanent collection of the Denver Art Museum, and has been featured in countless print and internet publications.
