Experienced Geospatial Educator
I believe in lifelong learning and learning how to fail forward. I always incorporate real world professional examples into my classroom. Having a wide array of environmental experience allows me to draw upon my current and past consulting work to illustrate the challenges that my students will face soon enough. I believe in preparing them both in a professional and personal sense. Having hired numerous entry level students, many of whom were my former students, I have a good sense of what will make a good professional.

Suffolk University Campus Modeling - Throughout numerous courses, Suffolk students are tasked with creating 3D models of the campus in ArcGIS in Google SketchUp. Using familiar objects with their own photos helps make the project more real.
New England School of Art & Design Project Map - NESAD was tasked with designing a new home at our Maine campus. A detailed property information including contour information was prepared so they could ideally site their new structure.
Wind Turbine Permit Mapping - Getting a permit for a wind turbine is no easy task. The powers that be required both plan maps, which was created in ArcGIS, as well as visual renderings in Google Earth, which were successfully delivered within a tight timeline.
Wastewater Workshop Trainer - NEIWPCC provides numerous training courses throughout New England and New York. As part of their GIS for Wastewater Series, Scott provided the 4 hour introductory “What is GIS?” portion of the day’s presentation.
