An American expat based in Italy, Scott learned at a young age to revere the power of science fiction, becoming a figurative stained glass window through which he viewed the world. Throughout his childhood he was force fed countless reruns of Star Trek TNG, Quantum Leap, Sliders, (among many others) and lived by The Evil Dead triology and Saturday mornings watching MST3K with the rest of his sci-fi-freak family. Like every card-carrying dweeb who grew up in the ’90s, Scott spent uncountable hours in front of a TV and various consoles, but even longer wishing inside his head that the fantasies played out in games and movies would someday become a reality. After following VR casually since its entrance into the public psyche, he decided to investigate further by the only way he knew how: by writing about it. He believes that VR will start a revolution of the mind, helping to give ineffable ideas form and increasing humanity’s ability to relate to one another through free expression.
