Scott Adelson is a San Francisco-based consultant, editor and journalist. He has traveled to and reported from places as diverse as Tibet, Sudan and Eastern Europe, developing a love of adventure and storytelling that has informed his 25-year career. As a Washington, D.C., correspondent in the 1980s, he reported on Congress, the Reagan administration and the Iran-Contra Affair, as well as environmental issues and legislation. Having had the distinct pleasure of being kicked out of five countries, he now leads a relatively serene life in the Bay Area, where he consults for a variety of corporate and nonprofit organizations, and writes on topics ranging from news and culture to modern and classic fiction. He holds a master’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and a bachelor’s degree in English and American literature from Brandeis University.
