  • Scott is an all around great guy - very personable, friendly, easy to get along with, and a lot of fun at happy hours. I've known Scott for about 7 years, and warmly recommend him as a great friend, host and guest.

  • Scott is a friend, former professor, and just a great human being. He is fun to hang out with and always has something interesting on his mind. Scott makes friends everywhere he goes. He is trustworthy, responsible and respectful and, for you renters, lives in a great location here in DC.

  • Scott was my professor a few years ago and now I am proud to say he is my friend. He is extremely respectful, professional and knows how to make things happen. Well-traveled and always looking for a fresh point of view, Scott is the perfect host. He is excellent at returning calls, e-mails, (website hidden) messages, etc. - he is on top of all types of communication.

    His apartment is in a fantastic location.

    If you need recommendations for amazing things to do while in Washington, DC, Scott knows all the best places from restaurants to art galleries. There is so much going on in America's Capital City - if you stay at Scott's you'll be transformed from foreign tourist to local adventurer. What an easy decision!

  • I met Scott because we both hung out at DC tech-related conferences, and we had a mutual friend. I've since spoken to his communications class at American University, where I can attest that he was much loved by his students. I wish I'd taken that class when I was in school.

    Scott is smart, professional, friendly, and courteous. At the very least, you'll get someone who will treat your place with respect. And if you meet him in person, you'll get to know a really interesting guy.

    May 2012
  • Scott has been one of my best friends for nearly a decade. He is one of the most interesting people on the universe and can keep anyone entertained. Professor, social media expert, writer, on air TV personality, mayor, traveler...need I say more?

    As a traveler, he is inquisitive but respectful, open to new experiences, and more interested in developing relationships than checking the boxes.

    As a host, he is hands off but welcoming. You will spend most of your day checking out the cool posters and art on his walls. His apartment is modern but homey, clean, and couldn't be in a better location.

Hi. Ill start with some professional and career stuff before getting personal and talking travel! Currently i teach communications, social media and PR at American University's School of Communication in Washington DC. My first career in the nonprofit sector was with the March of Dimes and Mt. Diablo Hospital Foundation in the San Francisco Bay Area. After that, I was elected as a city council member in Lafayette, California and served as Mayor before moving into TV news as a reporter for NBC in Chico, Ca, CBS in Santa Fe, New Mexico, before reporting in Florida statewide for NBC affiliates where I covered the 2000 Presidential Recount story. I then attended the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard where I did my graduate studies. After graduating I worked at ABC News in New York to work as a writer for the hosts Diane Sawyer and Charlie Gibson on 'Good Morning America' while also producing work at the United Nations with UNICEF. Moving to Washington DC i immersed myself in marketing working as Director of Communications for the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration before moving into teaching. I consider myself to be friendly, responsible and a good conversationalist. Personally I like to read, see movies, talk and keep my toe in politics without being a partisan. Having lived in California i enjoy good wine and beer too. Travel is a touchstone of my life especially recently. In the USA I done several big road trips and cross-country drives and seen 40 states so far. Internationally Ive been to six of the seven continents and close to 50 countries. This year i went to India and it was everything I expected and more. My travel goal is to visit the remaining key places on my list (Ireland, Scotland, Russia, Middle East) so i can then focus on returning to the places i truly love such as Kyoto, New Zealand, Argentina and other places.
