NEW Learn how to be a Product Designer and Javascript Engineer — First course available

Hello. I'm Scott.

AKA Scottus Robus

I design and build web applications mostly with Javascript. My path to web development has been the usual...

Grew up in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Briefly attended the Rhode Island School of Design after high school. Left school to wander in the Adirondacks of Upstate New York. Grew my first real beard. Ventured back to PA, and apprenticed as a carpenter. Built a shed and some furniture. Spent some time organic farming in Country Cork, Ireland. Worked as a nanny for 6 months in North Carolina. Moved to and hitch-hiked around Hawaii for a bit. Moved back to the US mainland. Studied effortlessness and forest gardening at Goddard College in Vermont. Held up the fort as a weekend farmer at a living historical farm. Moved to NYC. Worked at Tribeca Whole Foods. Studied hand-drawn animation at the School of Visual Arts. Survived off eating only bread balls (flour and water) for a month as funds were quite low. Met a girl. Got married in Japan. Dropped out of school for the 4th time. Became a Web Developer.

I currently run my own company working with various clients. Previously at Vimeo/VHX. I’ve also worked at Huge and was part of the original team that launched Baron Fig.

I live with my wife and family in Kyoto, Japan (previously Portland, Oregon).
