Hi! I'm Scott.

I believe curiosity has the power to transform your life and change the world. It's the key to connection, healing, and personal growth. It's a critical practice for your relationships, leadership, and life satisfaction. Curiosity, something we're all born with, makes us happier and improves our well-being.

But how do we tap into this superpower?

My debut book, SEEK: HOW CURIOSITY CAN TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE AND CHANGE THE WORLD, dives into the science, stories and practices that will help you level up your curiosity—driven by my work at the UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center. It comes out November 2023!

I have spoken at Pixar, IDEO, Airbnb, Google, and universities around the world. Beyond writing and speaking, I also work on creative storytelling projects with some of the world's most impactful and influential artists, organizations, and social movements. I also teach groundbreaking courses on healing and connection at The University of Texas at Austin. I'm grateful to do this work alongside joyful and purposeful humans!

I split my time between the San Francisco Bay Area and my writer's studio in the California Mojave Desert—but I'm an island boy at heart! I was born and raised in Hawaii.


Reach out! I'd love to hear from you!
