ABOUT YOUR HOST: Scotty is a writer, filmmaker, actor, designer, and teacher. Born in Atlanta and raised on Jekyll Island, GA (population 700) by a white father and Chinese mother, he graduated from Georgia Tech with Mathematics and International Affairs degrees. After traveling the world as a tour manager for musicians, he moved to Los Angeles to work in film and TV. He began to volunteer and teach in schools, using screenwriting, filmmaking, and free-writing to help students channel their creativity, find their voice, and create community. This passion for storytelling and the growing reality of widespread social injustice and inequality, combined with his childhood in the Deep South, prompted him to shift the focus of his creative efforts. He now produces a podcast and essay series, Mass + Volume, on cultural identity and social change (including an interview with The People’s Supper co-founder Emily May). He also hosts The Joy of Joining In (JOJI), a series of writing and storytelling circles. He recently moved to New York to work with an education non-profit supporting young people to live in possibility in pursuit of their dreams. His connection with The People’s Supper was immediate, both as a response to the campaign/election as well as a way to grow as a host and facilitator of conversations that matter.
