Scott was a beloved Pacific Northwest ripping skate and snowboarder. He possessed the best PMA and infectious smile. I often ran into him and skated with him around Seattle in the 90’s and even snowboarded with him randomly on Crystal Mountain in Washington. We used to laugh about being mistaken for each other because we were both long brown hair and skating and snowboarding in the Seattle area. Orcas Island Skatepark is fittingly named after him in tribute. What I great person! We lost him way too early in life.

While going through a box of old film today, I came across this 120 negative. I snapped it at “The Sound and the Fury” contest back in 1999, two days before Moving to New York. I stopped by the contest to see friends and watch some shredding. Scott was there sitting in the back of a truck looking amazing as usual. I casually snapped this photo before giving him a hug and saying goodbye. It was the last time I ever saw him. I can still hear his voice and his laugh. If you knew Scott, you knew he was as cool as it got, and the center of a really amazing scene. He was flow, he was everything. RIP brother.
