Talent Management

Born in the swamps of Florida, Scott would become one of the worst third-person authors of recent memory and is notorious for switching writing perspective mid-paragraph. I also like skateboarding, though the zenith of my abilities has passed, it still plays a role in my life.

I was attracted to working in Human Resources in the early 2000s and transitioned fully into the field in 2012 and celebrated the decision by leaving the tropical climate of Florida and relocating to the Columbus, OH area. The weather here suits me better.

Prior to joining the Denison HR Team, I worked for American Electric Power (AEP) for nearly 9 years in primarily HR roles (HR Generalist and Organizational Development positions) and as a Project Outreach Specialist supporting major transmission line projects in Indiana and Michigan.

And then one day, I left. Taking a full year off from work to explore the questions: “Who am I?” and “What do I want?”. The results were mixed, but it was a swell time anyway.

In April of 2023, I joined Denison University as a Talent Management Consultant.

“If I see Scott, what are some good topics to discuss?”

  • I’m a father and my son is in the Navy (I served in the Army in the mid-90s)
  • I love talking about movies (the weirder the better)
  • I’m a devout music lover (favorite genres are indie, post-punk and alternative)
  • J.R.R. Tolkien, Kurt Vonnegut, Ray Bradbury and Terry Pratchett
  • Denison Culture
  • Skateboarding
  • How Human Resources can support the overall employee experience
  • And video games…
